Actually, no.  I don't think Microsoft is any more evil than any other
proprietary software company.  And I think Windows is actually very easy
to use, and I like it a lot.  If Windows was Free Software, I would
probably be using it instead of GNU/Linux.

I write Free Software because I believe it's the right thing to do, and
it's fun, not because I think Microsoft is "evil".

It would be totally stupid to ignore all the efforts Microsoft has made
towards usability, and they've made a lot.  Not that they have a
monopoly on good ideas; we should of course take inspiration from Apple
and other systems too.

This is the last time I will reply to you in this thread; I sense
further discussion with you will not be productive.
