Look man, all Im saying is what language you should use is matter of personal preference. If you prefer Windows to Unix or vice versa more power to you. Dont make people feel inferior just because you like one tool better than what they use.

The only thing I would make someone feel inferior for is using a tool that's wrong for the job just because of 'personal preference'.

I write Ruby and JavaScript as easily 99% of my work, does that mean I never pick up Erlang or Scala or even C? Of course not, to do that out of stubbornness or some perceived loyalty to my platform would make me a very poor programmer indeed.

Besides, that's not what you're saying. Your comment was pretty well flat out saying functional programming is useless and people only do it to look smart. That, clearly, is a load of crap.
