Actually, no, I was talking about the way many *nix users sneer at other
*nix users for using the "wrong" *nix or the "wrong" hardware platform.
"HP-SUX, piece of crap", "LinSux is garbage, get a real Unix", "Get
rid of that Slowaris shit", etc.

We don't need anyone to divide us up for conquest.  We do a great job
all by ourselves.
