What a crass reply!  This is a GnuPG mailing list: GnuPG is on a number 
of OS, not just Linux.  This is nothing to do with any one OS being 
"better" than any other (I use Linux totally, but I am willing to 
accept that Windows does somethings better than Linux), this is nothing 
to do with freedom of speech (anyway, freedom doesn't give you licence, 
it gives you more reason to act responsibly), it is more about being 
polite to others on the list.

Which, unless I am very much mistaken, is one of the rules of this list.

>Say what you want, I will say what I want.

Certainly, providing it is polite and not insulting.  We are all 
entitled to differing points of view, however distasteful those views 
may appear to others.  But if you want to express those views in an 
insulting manner, please do it elsewhere and not on this list.
