Did you read my post completely? Especially the part at the end? Its
obvious that you have not read it. I am not going to sit and explain it
because I dont want to do it 5 times to make you understand it. Its
something called as satire...

FYKI, Linux has always been perceived as a hobby OS, a Toy OS. Nothing
big, nothing real. It has been perceived as being created by thousands
of people in a very disorganized manner ( as compared to the traditional
cathedral model. Have you read Cathedral and the Bazaar for that
matter? ). Despite all these facts, Linux was adopted by <INSERT YOUR
FAVORITE COMPANY HERE EXCEPT M$> and its generating billions of dollars
of revenue and its being used in all conceivable fields. Not bad for a
toy OS, eh? :P

Obviously, everyone doesn't have a sense of humor or has a poor
understanding of the subject. Both type of people must refrain from
replying without fully understanding the poster's point or else they
shall make a fool of themselves in front of 700 odd people.
