What? Can't take a bit of competition?

"And there's that word "community". The word sounds warm and fuzzy, like everybody lives in a nudist colony and exchange kisses and hugs every time we meet. Nothing could be further from the truth. It's a brutal world out there. I've been tracking flame wars between KDE and Gnome since someone decided that GPL wasn't a liberal enough license for them and started writing a new widget library. RMS poking his nose the Linux mailing lists every once in a while correcting everyone on the actual name "GNU/Linux" was pretty nice flame fodder for a while, and then it got old. Recently, there's this whole tempest about including Mono into Linux distros by default. Debate is good, and coming to blows after a pint too many build stronger bonds, but it sure doesn't mean that one has to take part in it."
