Anti-Microsoft trolls need a hobby

This post about Monad, the command shell in Longhorn, is interesting. However, what's sad is to read the (many) comments to this post. About two out of three are anti-Microsoft trolls about how Unix has had shells for 30 years (Monad is so much more than a shell), or how it's going to make the OS more insecure, or blah blah blah. I swear, you could write a random generator to simulate these people: In response to "Microsoft has added ", the troll generator would produce "Microsoft sucks. [Randomly chosen one of 'Unix', 'Linux', 'Perl', 'Apache', or 'Amiga'] has had for years!" Geez, people, get a new hobby.
