Somehow I know this post is going to come back to bite me next time I
try the same tactic :-).  Windows as a server platform *is* stupid,
but not all Windows admins are stupid.  There, I've already found a
counter example that I agree with.

I'll say this though.  Even though I don't agree with everyone on this
list:  Jonathan, Stewart (and others who are avid Java haters).  At
least you guys are speaking from experience.  Sometimes that
experience is limited -- but it's not just emotion driven bull crap
(well mostly :-)).  Even when these flame wars irrupt and things get a
little rough, I still respect the experience that you all have.

I personally learn more from our fights, than the casual discussions. 
So, keep throwing those hand grenades! ;-)
