So you feel unable to face the facts.  Thanks for making this obvious.
You shouldn't complain, however, that the judge in this case has _not_
like you ignored the plain facts.

The court has to decide about facts, not buzzwords.  And the fact is
that there is much more competition going on for GNU/Linux system
producers than for proprietary vendors.  People are tied down with one
vendor once they pick a proprietary system, because all of the vendors
defend their own incompatibilities in order to avoid and harm
competition.

And this incompetitiveness at the harm of the customer is not present
with GNU/Linux.  You can transfer your software among platforms of
different vendors.  Yes, there are problems, but they are not
insurmountable, and not cloaked, and not willful.

And irrelevant quotes of yours do not change that.
