OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

I agree as well. I love OSNews but Thom is making bolder and bolder statements that are being presented as facts, not opinions. "Change platforms. Whenever you can" is a really silly statement. It basically comes down to "change for changes sake". Replace platforms with girlfriend and you can clearly see that.

Now on the other hand, if Thom would have said "Change platforms. Whenever you can find something better/newer/more interesting" than I can agree with him (even replacing platforms with girlfriend seems to work here).

But I like my current platform (and current girlfriend as well) so changing it sounds like a bad idea. I do like reading and talking about other platforms though
