This is a poll that leaves me option-checkless.

I usually argue about lipstick on a pig, not operating systems.

I usually discuss pros and cons when I'm flat on my face, or up against the wall.

I ask Joe the Plumber whether something is crap.

I abandon all arguments at the strictly-anonymous orphan drop-off revolving window at the organ-transplant bingo games run by the Sisters of St. Surplus.

Vista may be the cat's meow for some people, yawn, it may be the disappearing grin of the Cheshire cat for others, yawn ...

It is hard to use for an old dog like me who has developed certain habits in the way he scratches his fleas.
