Ford vs. Chevy, CoCo vs. C64, IBM vs. Amiga, and Amiga vs. Apple, I had some good times in all of those fights. Generally they are fun when approached with the right attitude (don't take it serious). Humorous chiding of a rival is pretty natural, but there are always the folks that take it too serious and too far. Best thing to do is ignore them. Don't feed the trolls.
As for how I feel about Apple vs. Android, I'm in favor of the open environment over the walled garden any day. When I lay down my hard-earned dollars for a product, I expect to be able to do anything I want with that product. When any company tries to restrict me in how I can use their product, then they're not going to have me as a customer no matter how pretty, slick, or trendy their product might be.
