| And of course, some pro-Mono asstroturfers who are now cwying and clutching
| their bwankies because they didn't succeed in making all the Linux community
| bloggers go hang themselves.
| Glyn Moody also throws in a hand, comparing the current Mono-culture-clash
| with the old KDE-Qt-vs-Gnome debate.
| He gets second mention this time, because, well, 'purist' and 'pragmatist' is
| a distinction that just can't stretch to cover enough edge cases this time.
| If you're a purist because you were concerned that bad choices could lead to
| a crippled platform, doesn't that make you a pragmatist, too? For example, I
| prefer Free Software tools for 100% pragmatic reasons. When it comes to toys
| (i.e. games) I'm just as happy with proprietary as open source. Tools vs
| toys - see, I can do alliteration too!
| By the way, the fourth financial quarter just rolled around, and MSFT is
| tanking like a dead mastodon. We're talking declines as high as 30% here.
| Ooooooh, so that's why all the distraction!

| If you're Microsoft and spend a lot of money on phony research reports for
| the sole reason of spreading FUD, that's alright because that are normal
| business practices. If you're Microsoft and you're crying for developers
| because nobody has any fun developing software for that pile of digital junk
| they call an Operating System, so you're forced to hire your own community,
| that's alright because that are normal business practices. If you're
| Microsoft and wait for the right time to fire your legal equivalent of
| nuclear missiles - aka patents - that's alright because that are normal
| business practices.
He defends me.
