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

    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

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

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

    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)

    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.
