Let's begin with the basics, Slashdot is rife with partisanship. From the original crop of MS haters to the late arriving and equally virulent crop of MS Fanboys and/or astroturfers. From the open source zealots to the Mac snobs and everywhere in between. The funny part is just watching the various camps take the pieces of stories they can use to their advantage and run with them, regardless of the truth. A good example of this was exhibited today in the Microsoft/Sony CeBit debacle. Everybody walks away with their own take, kinda like the blind men feeling up the elephant.
Not that I'm not guilty of the same thing, mind you. I happen to fall into that camp of MS haters. But I do find it all pretty damn funny nonetheless.
Just stuff I was thinking about, no great impact, you can go on about your daily lives, or leave a comment if you like. I'll be over here in my office pulling out my hair because someone crashed a server...
