  As South African that sentence strikes me as similar to some
  unfortunate sentiments our present government sometimes seems to
  Having won a majority in the election, they think that they now are,
  irrevocably, the Voice of The People - and by that logic any people
  who dissent, no matter how numerous, are obviously not of The People.
  In the same way, since MS is obviously beloved by 90% of the PC
  marketplace, any dissenters must obviously be minority groups, paid
  by competitors.
  No matter how many private people air their problems with MS here and
  in other forums. No matter how many: "We are Microsft, resistance is
  futile" or "Linux - now there's freedom from Gates" taglines there
  are attached to postings out there.
  If the MS criticism is limited to a highly paid minority, why is the
  term "Microsoft bashing" so prevalent and well known?
