Oh, I agree: Perl is a tool, much as a brush and paints are the tools in art class. I'm just trying to point out that you can have more than one approach to painting or programming, and that the lesson of additive vs. subtractive methodologies applies equally well to programming as it does to art.

I am not trying to evangelize, either; if you're reading this it's because you're here at PerlMonks, not What-Language-Should-I-Use-Monks. And I figured that since this wasn't code, I could safely post it in Meditations instead of Snippets or Craft.

As for the link you posted, well, I'm sorry that you think this is all just mindless blathering about how great Perl is. Perhaps you could read it again and tell me in which parts specifically you think I am being a Perl zealot like the other poster was. ;-)

[marto]: hmm, yeah, just thinking that I could really use another of the amazon tablets we got the kids years ago, so I can remove the OS. Long flight to Canada coming up :P
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - on a whim I bought two or three back then, but now that I'm comfortable with putting LineageOS on them, they are not for sale anymore ;)
[Corion]: It's a difficult thing, timing your purchases so that alternative ROMs are available and stable just when the devices go on clearance sale :)
[Corion]: Maybe I should work more on my "price monitoring" framework, or talk to friends to get historic price data for gadgets and employ Machine Learning to predict "device goes on final sale" events :)
