Re: Difficult to see
Eadon - as usual your are jumping on anything within a story in an attempt to support your anti-MS, pro Linux stance - even if it doesn't make sense (as evidenced by the VMware comment above).
By all means make arguments but at least be prepared to explain them and back them up with sound reasoning and real information. Otherwise your remarks add nothing useful to the debate.
I use Linux a little but not a lot - I therefore don't think I am qualified to post on most Linux issues, I just don't have the knowledge. I am however well qualified to talk about Windows server. I suspect that the situation is a little different with regard to you - you seem to know very little about Windows server, however you freely comment on how dire it is.
I replied to one of your posts some time ago asking you to explain why Windows Server is not scalable. I'm still waiting for an answer, could you please explain why? Also please back up your remark about frequent reboots, rather than dogma based on what you heard Windows server was like ten years ago. If a sys admin needs to keep rebooting Windows servers it says more about his/her abilities than it does about the OS itself. I know from extensive experience Window Server is rock solid as far as stability and reliability is concerned.
I don't doubt your knowledge of Linux, however I suspect that you make most of your Windows remarks up off the top of your head. You are right about one thing though - Windows 8 really is crap, on that we can agree!
