Big biz 'struggling' to dump Windows XP

Problem = Opportunity

This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses to get out from under the thumb of a proprietary system that doesn't value backwards compatibility. If they're going to have to do massive rewrites, why not just move to Linux, Firefox, Libre Office, and open source HTML standard for their web apps? Migrate databases to PostgreSQL. Do it one time and leave Micro$oft in the dust.

Good choice

This is as it should be. PostgreSQL has much to offer and has always been technologically superior to MySQL.

Hypocrisy?

So, one criticism was interoperability and this could be addressed with software updates. But rather than do this, they want to "update" all their computers to a totally new OS with an eye towards then "updating" them to the next generation of Windows!? Nonsense.

The other side of the coin

A rigged bid process smacks of some type of corruption in the government. And we want to give these people more power?

Keeping up with Linux

Its funny to see Micro$oft trying to keep up with Linux. Linux was first with 64-bit support, USB3 support, and already supports ARM. Micro$oft is first in ... marketing.
