You only criticised Microsoft's OSs, not the (presumably) other countless
OSs you've used.

Not that it matters to me, per se - I don't have any brand loyalty.

As I said, I just find Microsoft derision as tedious as any other mindless

As was I.

If it's OK for you to express your opinion, it follows it's OK for me. See

I'm not upset in the slightest.

I merely find sustained anti-VendorX stuff somewhat tedious, and sometimes
feel the balance needs redressing.

As could countless others, both now, and in the past.

Criticism is one thing - were it counts - yours' was merely general

I am not particularly pro-Microsoft. I'm just not anti-Microsoft.

As I said previously, polarisation is tedious regardless of the vendor.
