Discipulus, tilly just gave you the best advice you will ever get on this subject. I have "helped" six people make the switch from Windows to Apple, not by telling them that Windows sucks, but by working patiently beside them on a Windows machine while I wore an Apple shirt. They try to start fights about it, but I don't take the bait. "Sure, Windows is a fine OS. They're both good, they both do what you need them to do. I just prefer the way it does this or that thing. Like what I'm doing here: at home on my iMac it would work like this..."

Eventually my boss got curious enough to check it out on his own. He did about a month of research and now we both have 15" PowerBooks. Never make them angry, just make them wonder what they're missing out on...

[marto]: usemodperl I guess that depends on what you mean by a safe space, since many people seem to have the impression a safe space allows them to do/say whatever they feel like, without question or critque
[marto]: 'typos'->'typo'
[usemodperl]: it's like you guys are retarded or something, no sense of humor? autism?
[usemodperl]: take things too literally, nothing is funny, everyhting must be perfect, or else, SCOLD SCOLD SCOLD, haha
[Veltro]: usemodperl I think you are offensive right now.
[marto]: people are very defnsive about their bad ideas behaviour' :P
[usemodperl]: sorry veltro, venting...
[usemodperl]: (is that wrong marto?)
[aitap]: usemodperl: maybe it's you who has changed
[marto]: demonstrably yes, since you claim to want a safe space, your definition for which seems to be a place where you can name call, make things up or otherwise post without being challenged
