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