My System Specs

It would be better to try a different approach if you're hoping to switch peoples opinions on using either Macs or BSD - even Mac forums I've been reading on, have people that are die hard fans that don't attempt to do nothing but insult another operating system.

BAH, end rant. Now I need a freakin Heineken after finally getting this off my chest.
Well I'm going to take 5 minutes of my time here to explain something to you or anyone pissed at me:

As much as I enjoy having conversations with you guys and as ironic that it may seem, I'm getting pretty tired and annoyed by all of this.

Everything I write here are purely opinions, but again most of the BSD/Linux/Security conversation that I write and reply in I back my claim with technical manuals and books, I don't just go on on something I don't know well or that I haven't learned from a 'good' source.
Here's a thing virtually nobody knows of me else than the guys I work with: I'm an obsessive compulsive (as in OCPD) and one of the 'nicer' symptom I have from that is a compulsion to understand everything perfectly and to the smallest of details so when you see me arguing over something like it's a "law", well it's usually a principle or a subject I learned and dissected to it's most complex form from reading and understanding a few thousand pages of technical documentation on the subject. I usually can't even sleep for days if I don't understand something to perfection.
If you or anyone else want to think otherwise by skeptism over my claims, well free to you to think like that, I can't do anything about it.
A thing is sure is that I won't back down from my opinions, because I never argue about something I don't understand perfectly.

That said and on a more personal note, Neo, beleive me I don't even remotely want people to switch to whatever else platform than what they are and for a simple reason: I'm not in front of their desk using their computer and I sincerely don't give a damn of what they use. Sure in my honest opinion I'm still going to think that windows is crap and won't use it else than for gaming, but why would I even remotely care about someone else's choice of OS? I often comment on it, yes, but care? No.

Also, for the last time, even if some of you seems to think so, I'm not a fanboy of anything. My choice are backed up by logical and rational explanation and documentation and if you think otherwise, well the only thing I can tell anyone is to read again 2 paragraphs up.

On that I'm done arguing uselessly with anyone who just seek to piss me off to compensate with a lack of knowledge or who is reacting irrationally because he's caught in a net of illusions over a specific subject in any thread (and I'm not talking about you Neo).

Btw ST, PM sent.
