10 IT Flame Wars that will never go away

SF

This should be a fun discussion...

Quote:
1: Linux vs. Windows

In my personal world, there has never been a bigger “cause” to send me scrambling to my soapbox.

2: Mac vs. PC

If I asked why there are so many battles involving Windows, I believe the answer would be a resounding “Market share!” (see above).

3: Cloud vs. local

Anyone who reads IT-related news has run into cloud computing.

4: GNOME vs. KDE

If you are involved with Linux, you know that the GNOME vs. KDE battle has been going on for a long time.

5: Social networking sites vs. managers/haters

There is no denying it: Social networking is HUGE now.

6: Vi vs. emacs

Let’s go old school for a moment. The flames of this war, for all but a few, have died away.

7: Google vs. everyone else

The interesting thing about this battle is that those who oppose Google usually can’t cite a justifiable reason for their hatred.

8: Firefox vs. IE vs. Chrome

Ah, the browser war. During the ’90s, this was certainly a fun battle from any side. It didn’t matter which camp you were in. Even if you weren’t on a side, this battle was fun.

9: P2P file sharing vs. tried-and-true consumerism

This is one of those battles waged mostly between end users and ISPs, businesses, and the recording industry.

10: Administrators vs. end users

How could I not end this list with one of the most beloved battles of all — us vs. them?

I think this is basic to human nature. People have a tendency to defend "their patch". This is no different in computers than in the rest of life where they stand for a particular party or conviction, a religion, an ethnic group, etc.
