Ive only been a member here for a relatively limited amount of time but ive started to notice that in some OS related news thread later posts tend to stray from the original topic and become battlefields for, for lack of better terms, "fanboys" and "trolls". Examples include long arguments over whether apple has stolen features from windows or if it is the other way round, whether apple is marketing existing features as new due to a new look (ie time machine) and many others. Now i know that the above terms do not apply to all those arguing on these topics. A lot of posters bring up very good, often educational, points that help to further peoples knowledge of the system as a whole. Still due to these posts it often seems that the front page stories have a second or even third embedded thread. So in a flash of inspiration (or frustration im not sure which) i decided to create this thread. The idea is to move a few of the more opinionated posts on feature discussion from the threads supposedly discussing things like the "leopard guided tour". So if someone posts an opinion such as "OMG this feature is so brilliant and will only ever work with apple" you can direct them to this thread and (moderators willing) let loose all the reasons you believe this to be untrue. Alternately someone may post something along the lines of "this is SOOOO taken from MS why are apple taking all the credit" and here would be the place to debate the point. I know that this may very well not work and if it does become a black hole of a thread i trust the moderators will delete it. Still i like to see the intelligent factual arguments (i find them very enlightening) but i would prefer them to be posted in this thread where they would not have to be ridiculed by those who note, quite correctly, that they are moving attention from the original post. Finally if a moderator does see this thread and thinks it is misguided, flawed or simply in the wrong place please do take the necessary measures and message me to try and see if we can improve it.
