Programmer friends: Many of us have deeply-ingrained habits of making fun of whichever languages, tools, OSes, etc we don't personally use. Please don't. I highly recommend reading Aurynn Shaw's essay on "Contempt Culture", which I have to revisit myself periodically: https://blog.aurynn.com/2015/12/16-contempt-culture
@jamey This is a very good essay.
Also, a fellow New Zealander! Yay!
We Kiwis/Australians (even the white ones) have a whole *backpack* of baggage about being second-class citizens because we're neither American nor British and have completely different seasons and yet have to keep trying to be American to invisibly blend into the English-speaking Internet.
You'd think that experience would make us more tolerant but it doesn't, always.
