Mini-Microsoft: 'Where are the Microsoft Zealots?'
In March 26, 2006, post headlined "Nix the Mix06! Back to Accountability and Pondering Attention to Bad News about Microsoft," Who da'Punk, the Microsoft employee behind the Mini-Microsoft blog, wrote, in part:
Speaking of Slashdot: I've once again had to flip comment moderation on. I let a lot of the anti-Microsoft comments pile up for a while, but then it just got offensively silly. You know, recently I was talking with a medical doctor. He said how much he was impressed by Microsoft Corporation and what high esteem he held for the company, along with the community values that lead to lots of charitable giving by the employees and the company. He was bemused and confused to have discovered recently that there was this "Evil Empire" point of view by some people. Most people in the world view Microsoft with polite indifference. The incoming comments by the Any But Microsoft crowd certainly serve as a small reminder of the lightening rod of hatred we still are for a techy subculture. The one thing it makes me ponder is,"
"Where are the Microsoft zealots? The ones who only want to run Microsoft technology and wouldn't dare suffer a Mac or Linux?"It's a good question. Where are they? Is their silence the reason there is a Microsoft technical evangelist?
