    Personally, I don't think it's very funny humour.  When one calls MS-DOS
    "MS-DOG" or MS-Windows "windoze", one is holding in contempt not only the
    sleazy marketing types at Microsoft, but also the programmers who wrote
    these systems.

They are all working on non-free software.  And making lots of money
for it.  I don't feel much compassion for them.

    I am speculating here, but I would think these programmers suffer a good
    deal more from MS's business practices than mere users.

If they feel really bad, they could quit.
