I've never understood the sad devotion to vi and vim and other obfuscated tools that UNIX elitists have.

It's because if any part of the toolchain doesn't work for you, it can easily be exchanged for something else without having to exchange the entire toolchain.

Don't like vi? Use emacs instead. The shell and all the other tools you're using won't care. Don' like the Visual Studio editor? Tough!

The Eurostar will take you from the centre of London to the centre of Paris in the time same time the plane takes you from Heathrow to Charles the Gaulle. Add in the travel to and from the airports, the cramped space and the cavity search before they even let you on the plane, and it should be possible to detect a slight benefit of taking the train.

How about you let people have their opinions without trying to belittle them? Just like you most people have good reasons for liking/disliking something.

I loved Crysis and I've played it more than any other single player game I can remember in recent history. The multitude of ways you can approach any "mission" can keep me entertained for hours and hours.

The gameplay may not appeal to everyone, but it sure as hell isn't the graphics that has me coming back to it again and again.
