I posted last week about the merits of both Warmachines and Hordes, comparing them to 40k and explaining how I couldn't see how 40k would win be back with 6th Edition.
I received a comment from Mik who said he has a "why can't we all just get along" attitude towards it all, and it has stuck with me.
As I type this I am on holiday in Cornwall, Newquay to be exact, and I have a stinking cold - no lounging on the beach today and plenty of time to think and type.

Having just invested money in WMH I'm not looking to put that down for a while but, as Mik says, why should playing one game exclude the possibility of playing the other? Aside from the cost implications or running two of the more expensive game systems available, my wife going nuts at the prospect of twice as many miniatures co-inhabiting the living space of our home and the division of hobby time between the two, are there any real obstacles?

Whether or not the 6th Edition rules are any good is a moot point really. The rulebook will be bought and games will be played, I will just try to limit any spending on GW models - they've had enough of my money already.
On the Warmachine front, I have my fledgling Legion of Everblight force, with another order just gone in to make it even bigger. This will be my main focus here for a while, to get things into shape and have options to game with. I will expand my collection of Cryx models because, well they look fantastic.
