Seriously, who uses it for Serious Work? Nobody.

How many times have you been told that almost every supercomputer runs
Linux?
Do you not consider the stuff they do to be serious?

No, he doesn't, because according to him serious work is always done in
MS-Orifice. Supercomputers don't run MS-Orifice, so they don't do
serious work.

eg:
Weather forecasting.
Financial planning.
Planning and controlling NASA's shuttle missions.

Those concepts are way over his head.
