"This is a weird and counter-productive way to promote Linux,
because it treats all of its advantages as liabilities. It sets up
new users for disappointment and failure, and it makes me wonder
about the real motivations of everyone who is spreading this party
"But let us not see malice or incompetence when it's probably no
more than trying to make Linux more appealing to Mac and Windows
users. I think it's sincere but misguided. Linux and FOSS succeed
on their merits, and it's the differences from proprietary software
that should be emphasized, rather than meekly excusing them, or
pretending they don't exist."
