I'm over it. I use software not ideologies.
I prefer Slackware and have used it for many years because everything's vanilla
and I can configure it exactly as I whish, I can compile anything I want/need
without a hassle and it is rock solid. But I run XP on it in Vbox so I can use a
windows only ide, MPLab, to program microchips and look after some legacy Access
databases. Up until a year ago I also used win2k as it was required to run some
scada software. Preference is only one factor. My sister has been in graphics for
a long time and never buys anything but Apple because it works best for her
proprietary or not.
I use what works for me, nothing's good, nothing's bad, they all just are.
