Oh gods, does this bring to mind lots (and *lots*) of scathing
commentary. I'll restrict myself to just one:

Windows is the de-facto standard OS: a lot of people know how to use

We're bright enough to know that popularity doesn't imply technical
excellence, otherwise we wouldn't be on a FreeBSD list. Having avoided
that trap in the choice of platform, doesn't it behoove us to avoid it
