Mine vs. Yours

"We need to get the religion out of ham radio. No, I am not talking about the HF nets that support missionaries or similar activities. (Those people might actually be doing something good for the world.) I am talking about the religious debates concerning new technology…this technology is better than that technology."
 "What other religious debates are out there? Android versus iOS, Open Source Software versus Commercial Software, My favorite rig versus Your favorite rig, … what else?"
A few come to mind...

.45 vs. 9mm (or whatever)
Glock vs 1911 (or whatever)
AK-47 vs. AR-15
SEC vs. Other Football Conference
Coke vs. Pepsi
Ford vs. Chevy
Beans vs. No Beans in Chili
Manhattan vs. New England Clam Chowder


  1. As a Connecticut resident i have to inform you that Manhattan style isnt real clam chowder, its clam and tomato soup. The only real types of clam chowder are New England and Rhode Island.

    1. I'm a New England CC fan... I'll have to try some Rhode Island. That's a new one on me.

  2. Holy wars are a part of all hobbies, some more than others.
    Let's not forget:
    Yaesu vs Icom
    iOS vs Android
    OS X vs Windows
    Linux vs Windows
    CW vs any other mode

    and for the truly geeky:
    vi vs emacs
    python vs perl
    bash vs ksh vs zsh
