In the News "Douglas C. Engelbart, a visionary scientist whose singular epiphany in 1950 about technology's potential to expand human intelligence led to a host of inventions - among them the computer mouse - that became the basis for both the Internet and the modern personal computer, died on Tuesday at his home in Atherton, Calif. He was 88." We lost one of the greatest - if not the greatest - visionaries of computing today.

Comments like the above two can become a self fulfilling prophecy (like how people make similar remarks about BSD and GPL licenses, which inevitably end up taunting others into replying on that topic)

So I suggest if you don't want arguments about the aforementioned, then it's smarter not to raise the subject to begin with.
