Are you into fascism Tobias? Do you know what it means?

I'm not here to pander to your insecurities. If you want to delude yourself into thinking you're more intelligent than others, you ought to make sure that its actually the case before you open your mouth.

Most people don't
and since this list is like a mini-government, fascism is a proper term to
use for your comment.

Incorrect. I have no control over any of the actions of anyone on this list. No one does, except the moderator. Therefore, this list is exactly not like a mini-government. It seems that you are the one that doesn't understand the meaning of the word "fascism".

I sell Linux. I sell my services to put Linux on
servers and setup business with Linux as the server OS - however, I'm not
going to fall lockstep into the LIST way of thinking as you suggest - I
don't have to find a Windows List because I'm on several. But I'm glad to
point out that I am anti-fascist and while you would like to control my
thinking, I don't mind if you are single-minded on this issue.

I'm not single-minded. In fact, if you'd read my reply to Art's latest post about the Register article, you'd see that I concur that Linux has some work to do before it is an all-around desktop solution. However, you continue to try to put words in my mouth and can't even manage to put correct ones in your own.

You and others like you on this list are zealots - It's your way or the
highway I suppose - Well I choose to run Linux where I choose - not where
you choose it.

Run Linux on your asscrack for all I care. Again, I have no care nor control over where and when you use Linux. Zealots are always trying to label everyone else a zealot because they can't see past their own opinions. You chose this list to badger, we didn't choose you. And if that's the way you feel about Linux, then I feel very bad indeed for your customers. I'll speak no more on this subject.
