I guess this is the best defence for XP, when its opponents can''t come up with better arguments than to draw some far-fetched analogies to unrelated concepts in the world.

Umm... Apple sucks because it uses a lot of blue colors while I would never eat a real blue apple.

Yeah well, I''ve never tried out XP in practice - but boy have I met people who''re almost fanatic about it.

Have you/do you used/use XP? Any benefits?

Usually people just give me som vague explanations about why XP is oh so good. It''ll be nice if someone for a change could tell me whether they actually benefit from XP when working on a real world project.

So you don''t know, or you''re just unnecessarily aggressive?

I also agree with HenryApe about Apple. Its stinks, I mean theres like 3 games for the stupid thing and its only used for graphics. If I wanted to do graphics I would have used a GFX! he he

In reading over that link on XP, I''d have to say that the kind of programming I do now falls into that category. Especially the small changes and on-site customer parts And here I was thinking that was THE way to program... what''s the alternative(s)?
