I disagree. It's witty, it's a proper piss-take.
As they used to say, if you can't take a laugh you shouldn't have joined.
/FOSS developer here. Co-wrote a Linux device driver once a long time ago, a few more bits for an important desktop environment. Know when to admit someone else has won the round--though not the fight, and can laugh at that. I do apologise if you're American, that would explain the lack of a sense of irony.
Best of luck to the Mint bunch, though. Those wily bastards on the dark side can be incredibly skilled (and well-funded), not easy to come out on top of them every time.
