Back in those days there were not such "Fanboyism" to any platform, hence discussions were actually more intellectual rather than non factual like they do now, for example, usability, what works for some doesn't works for another (main criticism of Windows 8) but any side is trying to preach that their solution is the best for both sides, Microsoft has successfully divided its user base in two, too bad for them.

Actually, the user base of Windows always splits when a new version launches; the user base split with the launch of Windows NT - the original one.
Splits in the Windows user base are FAR from new; it's simply that due to the competition being far more acrimonious among operating systems - even among those from the same company - along with how many folks on the planet now have access to computing hardware, there is marketshare to be had, even for niche players. (For example, as little marketshare as Windows Phone 7.x has, it's *still* greater, in terms of absolute numbers, than that of Windows 1.0 was at launch.)
Folks are reading more into the split than is there. The split is far from new - what's new is the split happening at the same time as a southward turn in the global economy.
