Came across this article...:LINK (http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/207407/why_windows_is_good_for_business.html?tk=hp_new)

Sometimes I do wonder how deep MS marketing goes. Does this guy get paid for MS?

I don't want to come across as anitMS because I am not. I still support a MS nettwork, but some of these reasons are just so false or lets say stretching the truth...

A lot of what he says seems to have come from a PR consultant but speaking as someone from a large IT infrastructure Management position one line of his has a lot of truth to it ....

"I don't question that it is possible to find or develop an alternative capable of filling the same role on other OS platforms. I question, though, the business value of swimming upstream and making every software decision more complicated than it has to be."

Apache runs on Windows, so you don't know that.

Whiskey spiked in turn with MS home office premium server edition vodka 2010(TM).

Also to ballmer, less than 10% != 5%, and the linux server market share is far, far greater than 5%. He must be coming down or something...
