Re: Long live Windows production servers

"What is really choice about Windows production servers is requiring an antivirus program that somehow gets its its new definitions stuffed up and voila you have a hung 2gig Symantec process you can't kill because it has its hooks deep into the OS"

That's not a problem with Windows that a problem with your AV vendor / your testing and rollout process.

For reference installing say an Oracle RAC server cluster to a running state on Windows Server is an order of magnitude faster and simpler than on Linux.
