The way you word things makes a huge difference on the impact and point that is impressed upon readers. The "verses" title has people spoiling for a fight before they even get as far as reading the first post! Perhaps a better title might have been something like "AMD or Intel in your main rig?".

Being a consultant means I end up dealing with choosing words on a regular basis. Phrase something one way, and the client will accept it. Phrase it slightly differently, and they start levelling accusations at me. Doesn't help when some of them don't have english as a first language either.
Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
