Gentlemen,

This thread is similar to the Windows vs. Mac debates here that sometimes
got out of hand. Since Livecode supports both mobile platforms, don't you
think this name-calling bullshit should stop?

I spent an hour writing a 'rebuttal' and finally decided to NOT post it. It
would just fan the flames. To each his own, but this thread has turned into
an insult and angst-ridden feud that won't result in changing anyone's mind.
Please stop.

It seems the current political climate appears to give license to anyone
that doesn't agree to go to the extremes.

*These are just phones*.
