This has to be BS. "Tried Linux during college"? C'mon. That's so loaded it's absurd. This is some kind of nerd commentary on another social issue. Some Linux guy's blog is the only source for the story? Shenanigans.

I agree. That line absolutely jumped out at me.

Characterizing Linux as a youthful indiscretion is pretty funny, though.
