I don't like making people cry. OK, really I do. ;)

But in all seriousness, I have actually used _both_ Altera and Xilinx 
devices and tools for my work, and definitely have a preference for the 
former in terms of both silicon and tools. Not sure if Ed is implying 
that you can't do top level schematic in Quartus - or whether he simply 
prefers the schematic entry of ISE - but it is of course possible. It's 
just not my personal preference to do so.

Cool, looking forward to seeing, err... hearing... the results! ;) Maybe 
I need to port an arcade game that actually used one!?!
