X vs Y. Why?

Posted 01-15-2006 at 06:02 PM by XavierP

The number of "Windows vs Linux" threads seems to be increasing, why? Why why why?

Opening Paragraph

Posted 12-24-2005 at 12:00 PM by XavierP

Ingredients:
1 blog
1 blogger
Mixed users
Mix of things that need to be said

Stir well and leave to percolate.


What's this all about then eh? Well, since I already have a blog and since everyone else will be blogging about their Linux experiences, I felt that I needed to do something a little bit different.

This will be full of stuff that annoys me. No personal attacks, though, it will be about trends rather than...
