Holy Wars

11 Oct 2012. comments

A ‘holy war’ is a term describing when someone tries to convince others that they know the ‘one true way’. But there is never ‘one true way’. The truth is often much more complicated than a silver bullet might claim to provide, and what works for me might not work for you. And most holy wars are about things that don’t matter. Spaces vs tabs, Emacs vs vi, newline braces or same line braces, etc.

Time is your currency on earth: Spend it solving real problems worth thinking about.
