With NO relation to Benjamin, that one did make me think of something I saw
on recently.  Firstly, I must admit it's confirmation bias on
my part, I've always felt that anti MS stuff on the part of Linux (or even
Mac) users is a bit like a little dog barking at a big one.  

Anyway, to quote the frequently interesting 

"All these names do is remove any chance of rational debate. When someone
types "Micro$oft", they've announced that their position is so utterly
unchangeable by thought that it's started changing other parts of their
brain around itself."
