love your frameworks

Any discussion on the blogs world comparing frameworks will almost immediately spark off religious-like flamewar. But I come across this in codahale's blog, and fully agree with it,

I like Ruby, but I try not to be emotionally involved with it. It’s a nice tool, but it’s not the only one.

Ok, he actually talked about Ruby here, but I think it is true to any Programming languages and frameworks too. They are after all, tools to help us perform our works. Being too emotionally involved with a particular programming language/frameworks sound pretty scary to me.

Just like we can't say English is better than Chinese, or French is better than Spanish. I think being able to appreciate the beauty of different languages/frameworks make this world a better place. Think so?
