Paradoxically, I partially agree with Ian on this.  On the one hand, it is
important to hear about alternatives in the same eco-system (and alternative
approaches from other communities).  That is a bit different from Ian's
view.

Where I agree with him is that discussions should not be in the form of
simple breast beating.  Discussions should be driven by data and experience.
 All data and experience are of equal value if they represent quality
thought.  The only place that company names should figure in this is as a
bookmark so you can tell which product/release has the characteristic under
consideration.

This doesn't get said nearly enough.
