Me vs. Holy War Zealots

Use what you like, use the right tools for the job. If you dislike it, at least learn enough about it to argue intelligently. The amount of times I have had to debunk a "But Windows can't..." statement from an anti-MS zealot is ridiculous.

"Nothing is sure but death and taxes" I say combine the two and its death to all taxes!

    Exactly the mantra I have used over the last 20 years reguardless of VI <-> EMACS, DOS/Win16/Win32 <-> *NIX, PC <-> MAC or whatever. Everything has its place and everything has the right use.

    I sure wouldn't want to try and do stuff that a mainframe does well on a PIII running *NIX or Windows but on the other hand I think a mainframe is going to be a poor fit on my desk.
