Mainly driven by web scripting and relational database systems, but would really like to learn more about game design as well as core-level architecture.
Debates - Stance
MySQL vs PostgreSQL
PostgreSQL, especially 9.0, faster, stronger, and more importantly: more reliable.
PHP vs Perl
Depends on the language, but primarily Perl. Afterall, it was a Perl programmer that developed PHP only to use in addition to his Perl tasks, not as a replacement for it.
Apple vs Microsoft
Both. Competition drives the markets and will hopefully bring out the best in both. They both develop products to service their clients. Being a programmer, I prefer a MS or Linux based OS, preferably Red Hat or Ubuntu.
