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.
