I cannot be sure if this is about me or a group of people including me.
If you check my comments (under this name or my previous alias 'bark at the moon') you might find that I am not particularly biased either way (or so I like to think). Well, maybe my bias is that I'm an IT junkie and I take my drugs even if it is bad for me. I let others fight over which is the good, the bad or the ugly.
Some however, come here not so much to present their view but to be on a forum where MS developers themselves hang out. Some then proceed to simply bash. True, Linux bashers are here in abundance too and I don't care for them.
As far as Corona_coder goes, the wording in the 'Vista fails again' is exactly what you mention: opposing MS, that's all. What is actually being said is buried under that strong wording. The impression I get from that is that what happened (multiple failed installations) is less important and falls away under a deluge of words.
If I try to get technical matters across and/or make comparisions, I try (try, I say) not to bury it under non-information.
"I returned the software after fighting with the salesman"
The impression I get is that Vista was bought with this in mind, looking forward to the opportunity to get into an argument with someone selling Microsoft products. How I come to that conclusion? The form combined with the content.
In the responses there was irrelevancy too. Cescotto brought up the matter of marketshare. Marketshare matters to marketing people and anyone in a commercial capacity. The marketshare of MS, Linux, MacOS etc etc is one of the least important aspects.
