No, I mean that your anecdote tells you nothing about the population, 
only about the people involved. Spend time in Bugzilla or on the forums 
and you'll find no shortage of people who have come to Linux from 
Windows. If you've never met these people then that just means that you 
haven't met them, not that they don't exist.
