OSNews, Generic OSes The weeks just keep flying by, don't they? It's time for another Week in Review, and this time, we actually have a few interesting things to review. Microsoft is going on the full assault against Apple and Linux on netbooks, Canonical retaliates, the IBM-Sun deal is still the talk of the week, and we did a podcast. This week's My Take isn't a happy one, but it is an important one.

All religions suck. Specially those that divide people. Still people believe in a superior being, but not in Santa Claus.

Blaming stuff like this on religion is quite convenient - it creates the illusion that we are somehow "above" this stuff, because religion is quite irrelevant in the western world.

Plenty of people in the US would disagree with you. But thankfully its influence is decreasing rather dramatically.

I don't think it was blaming it on religion per se, just pointing out that religions don't actually stop such things...which makes them objectively worthless (nevermind that ethnic differences do sometimes breed also on religious ones, and vice versa)
