      language, operating system, editor, or other tool (see religious issues).
      Usually found with a specifier; thus, Cray bigot, ITS bigot, APL bigot, VMS
      bigot, Berkeley bigot. Real bigots can be distinguished from mere partisans
      or zealots by the fact that they refuse to learn alternatives even when the

      tool. It is truly said ?You can tell a bigot, but you can't tell him much.?
