If you don't (now or at some time) use it, how do you know if you

People can like things for the strangest reasons.
I don't know if it's strange, but I liked debian (from what I'd read about it) before I tried it and long, long before I was really able to use it (if I can yet :( ).
You can like the *idea* of something without trying, but you don't
actually like *it*.

Yes, point taken. (Of course, you can also get to dislike things you once liked as a user.)

For example, *every* heterosexual guy on this list "likes" Scarlett
