Greg thinks I have a closed mind simply because I refuse to consider Windows,
ignoring the possibilty that I have not only considered windows but have used it extensively in the field. Having come to a conclusion about something is not the same as having a closed mind.

Yet Greg's mind is so closed, that in reponse to a detailed article comparing Windows-based Servers to Unix servers his only response it is //that it is not the OS in question//, meanining that it is not the same //version// of the OS that Greg uses. Of course, as anybody with an open mind can see, many of the issues discussed in the article hold true. But as I guessed at first, Greg was never really interested in learning.

When you have no argument: attack the arguer.

'Based on facts', if we had as much Oxygen as Greg provided facts we would quickly suffocate.

John Kirsh, however, provided many facts, Greg's response, as typical for the MICROS~1 zealots, was an unsubstantiated, out-of-hand dismissal.
