"Evil" and Technology: Not a Black and White Issue

,----[ Quote ]
| So, the other day, I'm in a lengthy discussion with an acquaintance, and as
| usual the conversation gravitates towards technology. I made my usual
| elevator spiel about Linux and BSD and FOSS, why I use it, blah blah. No, I
| say, it's not because "Microsoft is evil" that I use Open Source, but because
| Open Source is good.

|
| Point three: Silverlight, as noted in its Wikipedia page, is also intended as
| an SVG-killer. This isn't just bad news; it's a tragedy. All modern web
| browsers except Microsoft Internet Explorer support and render SVG markup
| directly. If SVG was supported cross-platform, you'd see a new, beautiful web
| begin to form, where AJAX combines with SVG to create a Flash replacement.
| You'd see as much of a leap in web design with SVG as we saw with AJAX.
| Score: 2 bad, 1 good.
