I used to think this way many years ago, but no longer. It helps no one. It won't make people convert to Linux or $insert_foss_os_here. I don't mind helping out Windows and macOS users, but it's going to be on my time and at my pace, especially if I'm doing it for free. But to say, "I won't help you because you're running Windows/macOS" may only drive them to someone who knows less than you and might cause more damage for them in the end.

Somewhere in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there is an ancient Commodore Amiga that is hard at work. For over a quarter century it has been controlling the heat and air conditioning at 19 different schools and running nonstop. It's still kicking, for now anyway.

my favorite pastime is furiously up-arrowing through my bash history to find a specific command for 5x more keystrokes than it would take to simply retype the command
