Re: The Old Argument: Framemaker vs. MS Word
Well, I disagree with Robert Heinlein. Just because he
(just like anyone else) uttered a statement, it
doesn't make it law. Besides, I think it was meant
figuratively, not literally.
Furthermore, to be pedantic, it wasn't exactly Robert Heinlein who said it -- it was Lazarus Long, one of his characters. Heinlein certainly didn't agree with everything he had his characters say.
FWIW, I agree with the general sentiment, without buying in to all the specifics.
