For reasons I don’t quite understand WP seems to have eaten Dan’s post.?? Here it is, re-replicated:
Looks like we both have trouble being succinct!
Thanks for the Linux lessons.?? I’ve worked in both Windows and UNIX environments professionally, but I’ve never done any real work with Linux.?? I appreciate learning more, and your information is helpful.
There’s no doubt that you are 100% correct about one thing:?? the market will decide.?? I don’t know where WCC will end up, but I’m sure it won’t be a Linux killer.
One aside (and I’m not trying to throw fuel on the fire, nor am I trying to play Crazy Windows Advocate)–did you know that both Windows and UNIX still outsell Linux in the server market??? I read that recently and was quite surprised.?? http://news.com.com/Windows+bumps+Unix+as+top+server+OS/2100-1016_3-6041804.html.
Linux’s growth is explosive, of course.?? Anyway, as I said before, I’m not trying to tell people to choose a particular platform.
Thanks for the discussion.
