How about "warm" & "comfortable" instead of "cold" & "sterile".

I don't know anyone who would like their personal boat to look like a Volvo 70 down below. Even the Volvo racers are more than happy to get off those things. That sort of environment is something one puts up with as a tradeoff for racing performance, not a choice anyone welcomes as a preference.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
