Let's see:
1. He's assuming Bill Gates has not already taken over the world.
2. He's assuming a Microsoft universe will be easy to navigate.

Now, getting less snarky:
3. He's confused between PuTTY and a web browser (hence the Apache
comment), and for all I know is shaky on this whole 'ports' business.
4. This is somehow PuTTY's or Apache's fault.

LART him but gently, though; maybe we can save his soul yet.  :)
