IE v Firefox
Windows v Linux
Open Source v Closed Source
Apple v PC
Blah v Blah .... etc
Does it strike anyone else that these arguements are dumb? To me this kind of thing is trival, childish, stupid ... and the list can go on and on sadly.
These wars aren't ever going to,
1) Feed Niger
2) Cure Cancer
3) Prevent climate change
4) House the homeless
5) End the killing in the middle east
6) Bring world peace
Get some perpective people, technology is important to helping solve the worlds problems, differences will always exist and individuals will always have difference preferences.
By focusing on the bigger issues and working out ways we can bring our considerable skills to bare in solving them is a much better way to use our time rather than putting our energy's into stuff that at the end of the days doesn't really matter.
For a start I think we could suggest ways in which we can help, start off small and who knows where that could lead? Lets start putting C9 to a positive use. Who else is in favour?
I have whitnessed too many arguments which involve OSS fan boys, it really annoys me whenever they comment on how FF is soo much *better* than IE when they see someone using IE.
