From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  Prisoner of Bill
      (PoB) A derisory term, in use generally among Unix
     users, for anyone who uses Microsoft products either because
     they don't know there is anything better (i.e. Unix) or
     because they would be incapable of working anything more
     complex (i.e. Unix).
     The interesting and widespread presumption among users of the
     term is that (at least at the time of writing, 1998) using
     anything other than Unix or a Microsoft OS (whether VMS,
     Macintosh, Amiga) is so eccentric a choice as to be at
     least somewhat praiseworthy.
