Why are you a "Windows Hater"?
I've been programming since 1981, and have worked with many many
compilers in my days. The Microsoft compilers have never disappointed me
in any way since I started using them back in 1991.

I believe I belong to a third category that you didn't mention below:

   3. The middle-aged mellowed-out "try to always do the right thing",
"using namespace boost", crowd.

We have two factions here:

1. The old conservative, Windows-hating, folks, whose only drive, or
boost, is that they type "boost" quite often.

2. The young pragmatic, "Do What Make Most People Happy", crowd.


PS: I belong to category 1, clearly.
