Heh, relax there, buddy. No need to get all agitated.
I am relaxed, I'm not agitated -- it's your straw man arguments, bating remarks, rhetorical questions where you offer your own answers and are completely intolerant of exception that have me reproaching you, and I've realize too late what I've fallen for
I was asking a simple question - "Why?"
So simple, so innocent; except you answer all your own questions with the assumption of 'correctness
' before offering an opportunity for response, and reproach the answers I do offer as unacceptable with more straw-man bullshit, and insults.
But I guess you were not looking for constructive criticism after all. Sorry about that.
'? 'After all
'? Where do I solicit any criticism? And where other then in your mind are your posts anything that even remotely resemble anything 'constructive
Au contraire, my good man. The only one giving off hostile vibes here is you.
You're obviously lacking in introspective attention to what you're writing, and how you're writing it -- or are a dishonest person.
Appearances can be deceiving. My desire is to initiate discussion, not to troll.
There should be no issues of 'appearance
' or 'deceit
' on an tech forum (unless your a marketing shill representing some interest), your statements and intentions should be explicit, not a guarded mess of jabs, bating remarks, rhetorical questions, sarcasm, and petty personalized insult under the guise of analysis.
It should be clear who the topic post was directed at; in case you missed it let me retype it here so you can see it more clearly: Arris: Application & Utility Forum?
Nowhere is there any "RFD" or solicitation for discussion explicit or implicit.
I'm not sure why you're so mistaken about my intentions.
Considering your choice of grammar, sarcasm, bating remarks, rhetorical questions and petty insults that till now I've politely ignored -- I sincerely doubt you are anything but trolling...
Maybe you're unclear on the meaning of the phrase "playing devil's advocate"? If so, I'm sure a quick visit to your search engine of choice will clear it up, after which we can hopefully resume civilised discussion.
More sarcasm and insults, concealing another self-aggrandizing straw man argument; ergo I that solicited a 'discussion
', want one with you, and that you have been civil.
Is it not the whole purpose of this forum to reduce the difference between Windows 7/Vista and Server 2008 R1/R2 Workstation to nothing more but semantics?
Another assuming rhetorical question; can you possibly tolerate or is there even room in your thinking for an exception? Do I even care at this point? No. But for the sake of others that may bother to read and may be mislead; I see many here that don't have any desire to replicate the Windows 7/Vista 'desktop experience
' or 'userland
' and, like me have some very specialized OS needs.
I do hope you're not somehow basing your self-worth on your choice of OS.
More revolting, petty, bating insults, why? Have you even read why I use Server 2008 R2, the answer is on the forum. Windows isn't even my main OS 'choice
'... But all things considered you probably know this already, and/or don't honestly care...
I'm only asking because your posts leave the impression that you think this is some sort of exclusive club where "run-of-the-mill Windows Users" (whatever that means) are derisively looked down upon by those select few who have been blessed with both the knowledge and the resources required to run this particular piece of software. Because guess what? It isn't.
Good Lord, you're so off-the-charts
with this baiting, bullshit, troll remark it doesn't merit comment beyond that...
Please, flake-off Indrek
, the post wasn't intended as invitation for your trolling; in the future I'll correspond any similar intentions via PM to the intended audience directly to avoid upsetting you...
