There are few people in the Linux community who have been able to
make Linux, foss and other Linux users look like idiots better than
Dr. Roy Schestowitz.
It's no secret that Roy is out for Roy and nothing else matters to
him. He misses no opportunity to promote himself, which brings me to
my next point which is the question, is Roy Schestowitz being
employed as a sophisticated reverse troll whose mission is to make
Linux, foss and Linux users look badly.
Think about it for a moment.
Roy Schestowitz spends literally 24x7 attacking Microsoft, Apple,
patents, commercial companies and so forth but and this is
important, his evidence, sources and data is highly suspect but yet
at the same time is easily exposed even by a casual observer who
decides to check a few links presented as proof of his claims.
Logically, this does not make sense.
1. Why would Roy do this for free when he wouldn't even take the
time to proof read a student's paper for free but wanted to be
2. Why would Roy Schestowitz make it so trivial to unravel his
forked tongue claims and flip flops? One real classic was how Skype
went from fine company to bug riddled mess within 24 hours of
Microsoft purchasing them.
It's "mistakes" like that, which makes people suspicious of Roy's
Can a man with such an education really be that ignorant?
Or is it all part of some sophisticated ruse?
3. Roy Schestowitz surrounds himself with a cast of clowns.
These people, like Mincer, twitter, homer, goblin, trmanco and
several other misfits are truly the dregs of society.
Pay a visit to Roy's irc to see examples of how off the wall and
twisted these radical cracked pots are.
It's scary to think that they are wandering the streets without
Which leads to the question, why would a learned man like Dr. Roy
Schestowitz want to associate, and encourage rejects like these
Maybe that's all part of the ruse. Get the real weirdos right up
front, encourage them to blab on about how everything on earth sucks
except Linux and free software and the result will be people having
a good laugh at Linux and it's users.
I think there is enough evidence to reach the conclusion that there
is a far more sinister motive behind Dr. Roy Schestowitz and that he
has somehow managed to pull of the mother of all trolls. And right
under the Linux community's eyeballs.
One thing is certain, Dr. Roy Schestowitz isn't doing all this out
of the goodness of his own heart. He is somehow, someway, turning a
profit on his publicity stunt.
The sad part is all the poor fools he has sucked in along the way.
Much like Shane, the original founder of Boycott Novell, these
people will get tossed under the bus when Roy Schestowitz tires of
his little experiment.
