In the last couple of questions I filed in here at AE I was advised to solve my issues by acquiring a Microsoft Windows licence.
I have been struggling to get TWRP to boot on one of my devices and on a first a reaction a user directed me to do it with Windows. While I regard this mostly as a raw attempt to help, even after I succeeded in flashing TWRP to the device from my system the same user kept promoting Microsoft Windows.
In a follow up question I specifically stated I am not willing to acquire a Microsoft Windows licence. This lead not only to more promotion of Microsoft's system, but even to a clear hint to use it illegally.
I do not regard the behaviour of these two users particularly malicious (one at least is clearly trying to help), they are possibly just being somewhat careless. In other StackExchange sites this kind of behaviour would be less welcomed. So the question boils down to how tolerable this sort of product promotion should be at AE.
