Re(1): From GNOME to KDE and back again: old computing habits are hard to break

I think it's fair for someone to question your motives, you did publish a false statement. Knowing how inflammatory this subject is it's reasonable to expect a journalist (yes I include bloggers in that description, sorry!) to check a basic fact. It is after all common to stretch the facts, to extend the impact of a claim that one is making, when you feel your claim may lack persuasion.

To reply with an ad-hominem attack aimed at belittling someone about whom you know nothing does rather add to his argument. It makes you seem rather touchy and pompous.
