Yet look at the conflict between products by Microsoft, Apple and even open source. The lines are drawn and emotion is definitely a component of the IT purchase. Thanks for your comment.

A stock has value to the extent others want it and are willing and able to pay for it. Hardware, software, food, clothing have value this way. The best hardware is worthless without software and vice versa. Some people are willing, able and want to pay for things based on logic only. Some on emotion only. Most of us on a mix of logic and emotion. But in IT, the emotion to buy the product du juor seems to dominate.
