I would have categorized this message as, "One more reason not to
marry a nut-job."  Clearly this guy is a psycho, but this problem
speaks volumes about the judgment of this woman when it comes to
picking men.  Maybe this is another reason to run Linux after all.  If
you ran Linux, you're more likely to meet and marry a geek and geeks
make great spouses (I'm too lazy to find the link to the slashdot
story on that factoid).
