OK, OK, I never told you not to use anything that has an MS label on it! I
don't care if you sit on MS labeled potty every morning contemplating on
how to annoy people who have biased opinions about MS on Linux mailing

So what? Use MS mouse, keyboard, or whatever, who cares? I mentioned what
works for me and never argued with you or anybody else what one should use
or not.

I still wonder why my comment upsets you so much to start this obnoxious
advocacy for MS inventions etc. on Linux mailing list. Why do you keep
coming back like a bad dog? Assuming SVLUG police role huh?

This is a Linux mailing list and MS was always a fair game since I joined
it. Some people (including members of this mailing list) use their
signature to express their opinion about MS, others do it in some other
way. I never saw you whining about that. I only made it as a side comment,
supported with examples, which you conveniently managed to ignore, so
leave me alone.

Man, MS biased Telebans are up the wall each time somebody mentions
something about MS that they don't like on Linux mailing list. It was my
opinion, I stand behind it, and you, either ignore or live with it.

May your MS mouse be with you.

My last word with you Sir.
