It's because a lot of people bash MS OSes. A lot of people don't realize (or are in denial) that the typical user who wants to just learn to program only has one machine they use for a lot of different tasks. It's because of this prejudiced bashing (which I will admit I do from time to time, but not a message board) that MS OS users feel the need to sort of bow down to the ^nix users. I understand that the MS OSes were not specifically designed for programming and that there are better systems. At the same time, I don't want the verbal abuse that I have run across in this community over what system I run.

I completely agree that Perl is for everyone. For that matter, every language should work on every OS, but that's just me, I guess.

My 2c. on that. Sorry it's getting OT, but I feel it needed to be said.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
