Personally, I happily use Windows and Linux.
Personally I am glad you are. I have long been a very
vocal proponent of using the right tool for the job.
Often times in my line of work proprietary is the only
way to go and when the opportunity presents itself and I
can make a good business case for it I will recommend
Open Source alternatives over proprietary ones. Please
note the verbage "business case" because that
I think this is the general attitude of the majority of
monks here. We ain't interested in religous wars here.
Personally, I find it irritating every time a subject involves non Open Source Perl programming, you gotta wade through all this irrelevant to subject at hand stuff about Open Source.

"this monk wants to be a martyr" but wasn't sure
what the cause is.
Gentle monk: I personally think you are talking about
some other site and not
