Does Windows really suck? Yes. Is Windows also awesomesauce? Yes. Are both these statements and answers contradictions? Yes .. and No. Wait, what? I don’t understand the question. Does Windows suck, yes or no? It depends.
Yes, Windows sucks as an operating system for developing in Unix-based programming languages
Yes, Windows has the best general Desktop user experience (of all current systems)
So, getting to the point, context-matters. Disgruntled old IRC channel loiterers love to make generalizations about everything from politics to operating systems, regex use-cases to procedural versus object-oriented programming.
This is a cautionary tale for newbies, listen and do as you’re told, but also, don’t.
