It's just another religion.

Fights between tribal groups of techs, be it linux v. Windows v. MacOS, linux desktops, best way to indent C code or whatever, are often described as religious wars. You can see exactly the same schisms in major religions as you see in tech-babble arguments.

Irrational tribalism seems to be written into our genes, either by evolution or the Intelligent Creator(s).
