      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 is important.

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.

I personally find rants to be offensive from any extreme. When I read your post the first question that popped into my mind was "is the OP talking about PM?" because it has only very recently on PM that I have seen anything resembling zealotry. Usually the PM powers that be will take care of those who get out of line. My second thought when reading your post and your own two follow ups to your own post I thought to myself "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 The Monastery myself.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
