Re: Long live Windows production servers

And in all reality, in the last 20+ years I've never met a situation where a combination of BSD and Linux can't get the job done in big multi-national enterprises. The only major problem has been convincing MoneyBags that FOSS really, really can be just as good (and is in many cases better) than PaidForUnix[tm] or Redmond or Cupertino.

Are there really many industries left where there is still a lot of Unix "big iron"*? I though that most places had moved over to Linux.

* I realise there are still a few usecases where x86 can't scale far enough; but over time they're growing small.
