"This suggests to me that Microsoft users who refuse to move
from a Microsoft operating system to something else may be in the
less intelligent group. I think that is more than likely. My
anecdotal evidence for this is I know several people who moved away
from Microsoft to Linux in the past few years. As I know these
people personally I can state with confidence that all of them are
rather intelligent people. I did not test their IQ, but I have had
extended conversations with these people on substantial subjects.
Without exception each of these people I know personally have sharp
minds and can "hold their own" in discussions on a number of
subjects. Many of the people I know who refuse to leave Microsoft
for something better tend to be those who also keep getting malware
infections that my company is called upon to clean up. Does this
scientifically prove that Microsoft users are statistically
"dumber" than Linux users? Nope. But it does show to me that those
people I know personally who have moved away from Microsoft to
Linux are smarter in some respects than those I know who insist on
using Microsoft systems and software."
