As the Boeing 777 prepares to enter service, I've been reading alot about the
differences in philosophy behind the fly-by-wire concepts at  Boeing and Airbus.
The more I read, the more I start to feel that Airbus may have gotten it wrong.
Does anyone have thoughts on this.

FYI:  Fly-by-wire types: A319/A320/A321, A330, A340, B777, Concorde, IL-96
Are there any others?
