I don't think anyone here has stated that Microsoft users are "evil". In fact, many of us are Microsoft users in addition to being Linux users. You may have noticed that a few of us have already responded to posts from MS users asking for help.
The concerns that we veterans have little to do with Microsoft, but more to do with how the forums are being run and how we feel we have lost a very special community -- granted, we lost it years ago with the demise of LNO.
And with all respect, if you were not a part of LNO, you can not know what we mean when we say that we lost something really special to us.
That said, I am still here. I have nothing against Windows users, being one myself part of the time at least, and I will help Windows users as much as I can since that is now part of the forums.
