Nice. Do you like Ellen Macilwaine?

Keep an open mind, now!

Personally I think it's hilarious, but just for fun. I know there's a good group of people when they can play-fight about OSes or other stuff.

Of course there's something behind it too. We all have stuff we're not fond of in the Other Guy's OS.

How about we keep an open mind about what other operating systems, be
they open or closed source?

[My opinion, not necessarily relating to OS or Morgan]

The phrase 'open mind' is an odd one. It tends to be used to get people to approve of or tolerate stuff they don't like.

"You need to keep an open mind about music."
I have an open mind.
"But you put down my favorite music."
Yes. I listened to it and know what it's about and I don't like it. Just because I don't like your music doesn't mean I don't have an open mind.

Said more amusingly: Because your music sucks does not mean I don't have an open mind :)

Further down the rabbit hole, I intensely dislike Macs. Someone once told me I would not approve of their ecosystem and they were correct. Do I dislike PLUG members who use them? Of course not. Do I enjoy taking pot shots? Of course I do :)

We must unite against a common enemy: Windows.

I told you not to read this.
