The Revolutionary MacBook Wheel

Don't get caught up in a flame war

Don't get caught up in a flame war

There are several topics that, if mentioned in a news group or forum, will almost immediately start a flame war amongst ordinarily mild-mannered people. SQL Server vs Oracle is obviously one. But there are others. You know what they are.

“Should database objects be named plurally or singularly, Customer or Customers?”

“Singular.”

“No, plural. You nincompoop!”

There are others, many others. And strong opinions are not limited to the database world. Your choice of operating system can make you either an enlightened visionary or a complete dolt depending on who you’re talking to at the moment.

Not a call to arms

Now, I’m not trying to start a flame war. But sometimes there something so spot on for one side or the other that it’s just too good not to share. This video has been around for while, but it’s one of those. It’s just plain funny.

As an aside, several years ago I opted out of the Windows vs Mac battle and adopted Ubuntu as my O/S of choice. It rocks! See My Virtualization Setup for a description of my system and how I use it to work with SQL Server and the .Net framework.

I hear good things about Windows 7. And I would certainly consider a MacBook. But they both seem to be pretty expensive compared to my Open Source Software solution. So for now, I’ll stick with Ubuntu. I do have an iPhone and consider it to be the best mobile business device I’ve ever owned, hands down, no comparison.

This video has been around for while, but it’s too good not to share. For the record and before I get flamed for bashing Apple, I’m not a MacBook detractor. Nor am I a MacBook snob. Although I know some of each.
