Biasness, childish, amateurish of some

May or may not have mentioned this before but I find it funny how one track minded some people are.
Daily I receive various computer related newsletters with various topics that are covered. What I do find funny is that when there are [for example] topics on Linux [such as “Five Linux Applications for Businesses] and there has been just a couple of responses [with one was a comment about a typo].
Then you jump over to say a more interesting topic [maybe why Microsoft Surface tablets may be considered a failure] and you will get all of these non-Microsoft fans coming out of the woodwork [such as those who swear by Linux] commenting about how it is a piece of crap.
You have to wonder why these anti-Microsoft fans jump on this topic instead of Linux [or whatever] topics. There’s is not interesting on their side? They like to bash another OS [or just anything Microsoft]?
Some will say [for example, for Linux] on how superior Linux is [except the fact that 85%+ of the world’s computers are Windows based compared to under 2% for Linux (percentages have always been a bit of a questionable subject – depends on who’s statistics you believe)]. Not running any anti-virus because nothing is made for Linux [are they sure]?
Some will complain how Windows is full of vulnerabilities or malware. Well, other operating systems have plenty of vulnerabilities. As for malware, I’ve had none for many years. If they ran Windows and got hit it is mostly because they clicked on something they shouldn’t have [sounds very novice] or they installed something pirated that contains malware [sounds very dumb]. It just doesn’t creap into the computer on its own. It ain’t magical. Those who say they don’t know how it got there are folling themselves. I can understand a novice but not a [so-called] expert.
I’ve heard some who swear they’ll never touch Windows again but I’m sure they still use it. No way to tell of course.
You have some who complain about how slow Symantec Antivirus is. That was true about 5-7 years ago but it is fine now. Have they used it within the past 5-7 years? Nope. You have some who complain that this phone or that phone “sucks” but you wonder if they ever had one. Probably not. They are using a different brand.
Some people are biased. Others remind me more of brainwashing. You know it is one of these when someone is saying how crappy Windows 7 is. Of course you will have those few who show that they are either immature [with their really ridiculous comments] or just novices pretending to be an expert.
I probably do defend Windows more than bash another product, but at least if I do bash it is for reason and data [off the Internet] to back up what I am saying.
You know that you can trust someone to give you a more straight, truthful and logical answer if they have a good reputation that someone who doesn’t [and maybe uses the alias “Lnx 4ever” or “Ballmer is God”!].
