I believe what you have there is a knowledgeable troll, and quite a 
successful one judging by the responses.

There are some blinded, narrow minded Windows users out there, but we
keep seeing that exactly the same is true of some linux users.

Also, far from being blind to reality, his first post seems to be
an accurate parody of linux in places. The best parodies are the ones
that stay closest to the truth.
