I hate Microsoft, I claimed my self as a geek… really?
I come across so many people who try to claim as geeks by ditching Microsoft and it’s products. But in reality most of these guys started there career with MS Products or still it’s a bread winner for them. I am not talking about those guys who do wonders and are real geeks. I am talking about those guys who try to showoff and don’t know how to, so the easy way is just say ‘I hate Microsoft’.
A friend of mine was talking about how bad the MS products are, and praising other platforms. At the end he was telling ‘unfortunately I am working in MS products’ ahh!. Who the hell asked you to bed with some thing that you don’t like, no one holding you in point blank. You are the one who decides and if you still with MS products then shut up.
Telling a common man ‘I hate Windows and Love Linux or xyz’ might get you a wow factor. He might have seen only Windows or Mac and might have heard Linux, some thing with command lines and all those stuffs.
Geek-ism is a lifestyle, using one platform or ditching another wont get you there. You should be knowledgeable in all the similar platforms, to decide what to choose in a particular scenario. Do some thing wonderful to the world with what you have. Using Linux and just browsing and watching movies… will that make you some thing special.
I am not a fan of Microsoft or fan of any specific Company. I am a fan of technologies or frameworks that helps me to survive, to help me do my work at ease.
