I'm sorry for the possible flame this is going to start:

I've read all your mail, just to see if there is something
linux-related on it. And (as usual with your mails) there is nothing.

Please, we know Windows _could_ suck but STOP (yes, I'm shouting)
STOP, STOP, doing things like this.

This post is only noise in the list. And thanks to you, now I'm
feeling guilty because I'm following your fu#$7ng story.

You never follow the rules man. Never, ever. And they've been told to
you so many times...

I'm wondering if this is just a test to check our patience.
