Hugs back to you bud. I'll point you to the proliferation of operating systems, IDEs and other
devices. Not everyone can be perfect and use a Mac, Eclipse and Maven :)

But I put up with them nonetheless :)

>> Eh, I'm not sure on this one. I think it depends on how you consume the information
from JIRA or a mailing list. A mailing list discussion may be great if you're on the go, or
reading it on your blackberry: easy to reply to, quickly able to read, that type of thing.
However, what if you want to search it? Or search across a number of them? Google is great
for that too, (as are the mail archives) but there's some extra clicks there that you have
to do to find what's going on. It's also not real time in terms of being able to search latest
issues. Some mail-archive systems are real time, but you have to leave the context of your
reader to go use them (open a browser, click, click, that type of thing).
