Not trolling, just truthful

(This is the Online column, written for The Southland Times)

troll2Before I sign off, crack open a bottle of wine and enjoy my holiday, I’d just like to say that no, last week’s column wasn’t a trolling exercise.

It wasn’t written to encourage even more e-mails telling me why I should use Firefox, Opera, Linux or any other non-Microsoft software.

It was written as a reminder that we all have our own tastes and preferences and I don’t feel obligated to offer an answer when I’m asked — over and over again — to explain why I prefer one brand over another.

I don’t have an answer for that question, it’s like asking me why I don’t like broad beans. I just don’t.
