Hiya, this is the "element" here,

I am forced to used Windows on a daily basis, so I feel quite justified 
in disliking it intensely. My background is UNIX so I am probably a 
"brainwashed fanatic" as far as you are concerned, since one of the 
reasons for my hatred of Windows is that is doesn't come with vi. ;-)

Anyway, what irritates me the most about it is that so much time and 
effort and money is spent on preventing viruses and so on. I have never 
had to bother with such irritations with *N*X, assuming that decent 
passwords are in use and all unnecessary network services are switched off.

I'm sorry if I offended you by calling Windows crap.
