No I don't. My point is that people should use the OS that is best suited for 
them. If somebody tries to force something onto you, you might be in your 
rights to ask them for assistance, but I would like to point out that a very, 
very large part of the Linux users does NOT ask people to shift OS.

The fact that I do not encourage people to shift OS gives me the right to 
reject the idea of a Window like set of system tools.

If this comment is on me, let me correct you. I didn't say RTFM. I said "do 
not shift OS unless you know what and why you are doing it!". I believe there 
is a remarkable difference.
