While it is true that Moss from the IT crowd is an extreme stereotype of nerddom, I tend to identify a bit more with Roy. Roy is not portrayed as the über knowledgeable tech, but has his smarts. He is more socially competent than Moss in many ways, but worse in many others. Roy holds a great deal of disdain for the people he supports, which is not only typical of IT, but at times necessary.
