Leo Laporte, host of “Windows Weekly” was heard during Sunday’s edition of “The Tech Guy,” publicly slamming the Windows operating system. “It’s a horrible operating system,” said Laporte.
What struck many TWiT watchers as odd, is that Leo claimed that “Windows Weekly” co-hosts Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley would both “hate Windows too.” The two are longtime contributors to pro-Microsoft publications and blogs. This puts Laporte directly at odds with one of his marquee shows. We’ll stay tuned here at #TotalDrama to see what happens when “Windows Weekly” is recorded live next week.
Laporte dug himself in even deeper when he went on to say that if TWiT fans were disappointed in his cavalier attitude toward the most popular operating system in the world, that they should tune into a rival network because the host there is a “Windows fanboy.”
Laporte was referencing Andrew Zarian, host of the wildly popular GFQNetwork. Zarian laughed off Laporte’s criticism of GFQ. “I’m a Windows fanboy LOL,” Zarian said sarcastically. “I haven’t used a Windows laptop in five years.”
