I have two requests to make to you. Or, you can take it as advice.
1. Don't hate M$.
- They may be evil, but also smart. Talking about Microsoft or
other competitors to linux cannot be counted as "nonsense" because when
your competitor has a good point, you have to acknowledge it. You ignore
their good points at your own peril.
- I know it for a fact that VS.NET kicks ass. That, inspite of my
being a Emacs fan. Go figure.
2. Don't hate the dissenters.
- For any community, dissenters are important. They are the first
people who can see the good points in others even if they love what they
belong to. They're the smarter people, whether you accept it or not.
And, you can count on them to give sound advice when you need it. Stop
the witch-hunting. You'll lose smart people.
