in reply to poll ideas quest 2007

I suggest that My Favorite Holy War is: be repeated with more options, and turned into a double poll like Re: poll ideas quest (housework).

Some more options that come into my mind are:

  • IE vs. Firefox
  • Linux vs. BSD
  • PC vs. Mac
  • Intel vs. AMD
  • Qwerty vs. Dvorak
  • (Update) MySQL vs. SQLite

Please suggest more options.

Update: yes, the point of this poll was to advertize my old poll idea on housework. The holy wars thing is just a convenient excuse for it.

    • Perl vs. my @otherlangs = ('Ruby','Python','JAVA');$otherlangs[rand($#otherlangs)];
    • Perlmonks vs. $trollnames[rand($#trollnames)];

    . . . and I'll leave populating @trollnames as an exercise for the reader.


    #my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:
    use strict;
    use warnings;
    I humbly seek wisdom.

      $trollnames[rand($#trollnames)];

      That never chooses the last troll. Use $trollnames[rand(@trollnames)] instead.

    • vi vs emacs
    • i++ vs ++i
    • indent width
    • tabs vs spaces
    • expr and action; vs action if expr;

    And don't start adding non-IT stuff like music

      • vi vs emacs
      • tabs vs spaces

      These two were in the original My Favorite Holy War is: poll, I meant that poll to be extended with options.

    The old PC vs. Mac idea isn't as relevant as it once was since the Macs of today (and yesterday to an extent) are built on the same basic architecture as PCs. To be more accurate it should probably read Windows vs. (OS X|Mac|Apple).

    Brace placement style. A lot of people tend to be very religious about this.

    # The best way... if (something) { do something; do some more; } else { whatever; whatever; } # The acceptable style: if (something) { do something; do some more; } else { whatever; whatever; } # The classic K&R style (ugh): if (something) { do something; do some more; } else { whatever; whatever; } # The conversational style... if (something) {do something; do some more} else {whatever; whatever}

    I'm not sure if there's any major variants that I've missed.

    sas

      The best, and only acceptable way is, of course:

      # The best way... if (something) { do something; do some more; } else { whatever; whatever; }
