Re: [vox] word processing software (was: visio on linux)

Quoting Micah Cowan (micah@cowan.name):

So, do you think "Linux is gaining ground in the server arena and not on
the desktop" sounds like someone's "belief or opinion", or an assertion of
fact?  I'm curious.

> I'm no zealot....

I've noticed that factual questions usually aren't fruitfully addressed
by pronouncing whether the speaker is a zealot or not.

> The right tool for the job is my creed.

You know, it would be _so_ refreshing to find someone whose motto is
"the wrong tool for the job".  I just can't seem to find any.

Cheers,                                      "Reality is not optional."
