in thread My Favorite Holy War is:

      *nix vs. Windows is the most annoying one when done by people who didn't contribute to any of those operating systems.

I don't have to have made the beer to have appreciation for the taste of a good beer over the taste of a bad one. Life is too short to drink skunky beer.

Considering all the hours I have spent generating reports over the last couple of weeks on the infected hosts on the network from the last batch of worms and other cybernetic beasties, I really appreciate my Linux workstation and the fact that I can run my WinBloze applications (i.e. Microsoft Office) under CrossOver for Windows with little to no fear of catching something nasty.

And I don't generally get into religous wars over it. This is as pragmatic as it gets. Right tool for the job has been my mantra for the last 20+ years I've been in the biz.
