as long as you stay in the MS womb

You don't need to debase an otherwise great conversation with incendiary language like that.




I certainly didn't write it to be incendiary, and I don't read it that way?

I'm not going to go back and edit it, but I'll ask you to give me the benefit of the doubt that I meant it to be as as far from incendiary as possible.


The perhaps unfortunate metaphor the womb implies is that developing in MS tools is like being a defenseless premature baby who needs to be protected from the big bad world until they come to full term and leave the MS environment behind.


To me, this metaphor could be extended to [whatever environment you first really liked]


I am delighted to give you the benefit of the doubt. Thanks for the explanation.
