I don't know what professionalisme is, but I doubt it's criticizing
someone who doesn't complain about being forced to use a "crappy windows
environment", but rather states how he deals with it.

I also don't think it's proffessional if you start your sentences with
a lowercase letter, and format your paragraphs using both very short and
overly long lines.

I also don't get the idea that Perl programmers should use the same
environments as the majority of the people maintaining perl do. Does
that mean that if I don't wear a white jacket while eating meat, isn't
professional, because butchers typically do?
