    Nothing, although my customers servers generally use Windows I'm not dependent on it for what I do and none of my own servers use it. In fact no one should be dependent on MS because whatever Windows can do other OS's can do too. MS has gone backwards in their quest to make a single user PC OS into a ubiquitous OS for all purposes. They should have bought and brought VMS forward Linux style rather than hiring its designer and butchering it as an MS-DOS upgrade to produce WNT then further despoiling it with sticking plaster updates to produce the Windows series of performance killers

      Where the user doesn't have to use and manage it Linux is very popular. Web servers were always more UNIX than Windows because technically UNIX is better.

      However what you see as an inferior O/S is the people's choice for a reason.

        Give me directory services, federation, group policy , centralised security controls etc and I'd consider it.

        That's what we need for office workers mainly.

        Don't get me wrong, I love linux, but it has its place and it's not the standard office desktop environment with centralised administration - and I don't think it ever will be, because no one's tried to compete with AD etc. (edit to say that centrify wasn't great)

          My biggest gripe is that the new file Explorer is currently crap.
          it looks 'orrible until you choose compact view.

            OS/2 will be great when it's finished (originally said in 1994 but still apparently true now...)

              Unless you rely on some Windows software (ok there's WINE but seriously who has the time).

              .NET now runs cross-platform, but that's thanks to MS

                That might be the first positive (or not negative) thing I ever heard anyone say about AD
