Jason makes a solid and sensible response to +Bruce Byfield's shock and dismay.

I'm of the same school: I do most of my work on OS X; I run Linux Mint in a Parallels VM. I use Final Cut Pro and Motion for video work, I use Blender for 3D modeling and FontForge for font design. I develop web sites using Dreamweaver, and digital artwork with Illustrator and Photoshop. I manage my photos with Aperture, and do IM with Adium.

The position of open source advocates is something like being a carpenter who won't buy tools from Garett-Wade (even though they're excellent tools) because he doesn't like the personal politics of one of the owners, preferring to buy inferior chisels from someone whose outlook better matches his own.

And that's silly.
