There has been a fair

There has been a fair bit of discussion recently about an article that was posted on the BBC website by Bill Thompson. I thought it was rubbish, and regurgitated arguments that we’ve all heard since …. well, I’m sure they were around a week after the first "blog" was called that.
Anyway, go take a look at what Tom writes on the subject, and also the (mostly) valuable comment discussion that follows from his piece. I think I agree with pretty much all that is said there.
