Maybe, that's because many people don't like the way MS is dominating
the market (becoming a monopoly, one might say), and controlling their
lives. So, those people try very hard to find ways to fight MS, and one
of MS's weakest point is the quality of its software (yes, yes, they are
getting better all the time...). People have to fight MS *before* they
get there (I mean, having really good software), and tend to be very
passionate due to this pressure.

So, from my perspective, that's not a Unix vs. NT issue, but a freedom
