Is this type of comment really necessary or productive? Does insulting 
the majority of computer users in the world advance the product in some way?

There are many, probably a large majority of, computer users in the 
world who think of the computer as a tool to get a job done, much like a 
car is to get from one place to another. They don't want to have to 
learn how an engine works, they want to know that when they turn the 
key, the car starts, and know how to use the controls on the car.
