it'll be interesting what sort of "debate" happens over at Ars. It's not exactly the most tolerant site on the net. Certainly not for us mac users.
I used to read Ars Technica quite a bit, until it became apparent that "Caesar" Ken Fisher is a racist. He typically comes off like your typical smug armchair intellectual, but once he gets fired up, he's got quite a mouth on him. I've seen him get pretty worked up and go off on people on IRC over basically nothing.
It's too bad, too, since the other guys on the site like Hannibal are actually pretty smart.
