Stupid people don't belong on computers

Every once and a while, something hilarious comes from stupid people. In this case, it is a person pretending that they know about computers. Excerpt:
If [Linux's ability to run without windows] were true (and I doubt it), then companies would be selling computers without a windows. This clearly is not happening, so there must be some error in your calculations. I hope you realise that windows is more than just Office ? Its a whole system that runs the computer from start to finish, and that is a very difficult thing to acheive. A lot of people dont realise this.
This person seems to believe that because it is not mass distributed through vendors, that it is not an operating system. He also seems to think that there is possible way that Linux can run without windows because a there's no way Linux "could just snap into existence overnight."

There are also comical responses to this posting:
Wow this is the funniest thing I've read in literally days.... I mean.. you were able to form complete sentences and avoid most spelling errors so I'd imagine you're not mentally handicapped, but GOD DAMN you missed the mark on that one....
Even my dad laughed at the article, and he has limited knowledge of computers. It's incredible that people can use computers, but not even be aware of the existence of alternatives.
