If you call this a statement of fact then we have a big problem. I think not
only it's incisive, it's offensive and yes I take it personally as a Windows
user and yes it's not the first time I see this coming from you.

But I don't want to start anything here, instead I would like to see the end
of it.

I think we and all other members of the list should avoid making comments
and state opinion about the world we live in and make our best effort to
honestly help each other. The rest we don't need. Isn't it the basic idea of
this help list.

I apologize to all.
