For some, reboots are a necessary part of feeling like they are
interacting with the computer in a way that taxes the computers ability,
thus providing a "feel good" by getting the darn thing to turn back on
again, so Microsoft provides a service.
For some in the Mac world, it is the feeling of superiority that makes
them feel good, even if the application they are using works better on
other platforms, so Apple provides a service.
And yet for others, watching a program spew out compilation notices and
getting the darn program to compile (and work) does exactly the same
thing, thus Gentoo provides a service.
For some on this list, reading your rants of superiority may provide
entertainment as they contemplate the inferiority complex that might
drive you to do so, thus, Matusiak provides a service.
Not all ignorance is bad, and nethier are those who posess some - even you!
