So... Houses simply shelter us from weather. Automobiles simply transport
us from point A to point B. Should we only live is sod huts? Should we
only drive wooden go-carts? Of course, anything else is just a waste of
resources, and computers are merely text processors.

This is the most feeble argument I've ever heard. Also, you have severly
contradicted yourself. Earlier you stated "You're begging the question of
whether a transparent terminal is
'progress.' I submit that it isn't, and it's just stupid shit", but
according to your description above, they have actually helped in creating
the need for bigger, faster, more capable hardware. Maybe you don't
understand how this works. That's progress, you see? If you prefer, the
actual definition of progress: to grow or develop, as in complexity,
scope, or severity; advance

Anything you say from here forward is, well, just you trying to validate
how smart you [think] you are.

Keep your mouth shut and people won't know how dumb you are. Oops, lemme
rephrase that seeing as your semantically retareded: keep from responding
to email lists and people won't know how dumb you are.

You are a joke. And a dumb joke at that.
