I don't have the technical know-how, nor do I have suitable images, but I'm amazed nobody's hit this one yet:

1e = DOS
2e = Windows
3e = Linux
4e = Mac

What's scary is the more I think about it, the better that analogy works for me!

Touhou Hijack, my images were actually pretty damning to all editions (save for the Modon post, that one was just charting the evolution of everyone's favorite mechanized planar race). In fact some of the most damning meanings are actually behind the most innocuous seeming of the images I choose.
Most of the posts have been trying for the funny rather than trying to start a flame war.

Trolls on both sides are being shouted down, though I will admit that some are wittier than others. (While some are only half-witty.) Seems the 4e trolls are busier this time around, or maybe just rolling badly on their Sneak rolls. It also seems like a lot of low post counts are chiming in. But don't worry, thick headed, moss covered, 3.X trolls will come lumbering down from the hills soon enough. (Then go back up, they forgot their clubs.)

it's frustrating because i like 3.x, pathfinder, and 4e, so I don't want to counter with a series of images that puts down 3.x/PF. Meanwhile, someone actually took someone else's mock of 3.x and reversed the images as if that constitutes a damning argument. Oh well, back to reasonable attempts to sum in images:

only someone with their finger on the pulse of magic rules/development over the years will fully understand the differences highlighted.

It seems like the ones with the lowest post counts are the ones shouting the loudest about "edition warring".

What's really odd is that several of these low post counts seem to stop posting only to have another low post count show up with the exact same criticisms. Things like "X class is underpowered in Y edition". Hmmmm......

Heh, one thing about it, the poor troll put on some pounds over the years. :D Then again, looking at the early pics, he bloody well needed a bit.

Hi,


Shouldn't someone more clever than I, post pictures of Coke, New Coke, Classic Coke, and somesuch?

I don't know where to find the pics, and can't figure out which soda would go with which edition.

There's another post that has a list of cokes for each edition, but I thought I'd add this one since it seemed appropriate:

(BTW - just so this doesn't get misinterpreted, I'm playing on the fact that Hackmaster tends to have artwork that's an over-the-top bloody parody of classic D&D. I'm not hating on Hackmaster :))
