Windows users got what they deserve.

Thank you Linux D.E.'s (GNOME3 and Unity excluded). If I sound like an MS, GNOME3 and Unity hater, it's because I am.

I've warmed up to Gnome 3, felt awkward going back to a Gnome 2 box the other day. I checked out Windows 8 at one of the big box stores the other day and it felt like I needed a secret decoder ring to do things. Maybe Windows 8 would make sense on a tablet, but this wasn't a tablet and just felt wrong.

I think this notion that users are too dumb to deal with different types of interfaces on different types of devices (and therefore there must be one interface to call them all and in the darkness rule them) must have come from persons who have never actually dealt with real live users.
