LXer: Winning the Linux Wars

Published at LXer:

[ED: How MS is going to Win the Linux Wars, not quite there yet but with these wise words of warning how cannot they not Win? - HC] "Raising the caution flag: Linux is still a maturing platform, and with youth comes uncertainty. "The [Microsoft] value proposition is always a good sell, but it doesn't hurt to back that up with a really long hard look at what the risk factors are," notes Tim Beamer, technology ... " [ED: Be assured Windows is rock solid, and when it's not it gets fixed, and when it's fixed late it's fixed mostly right, and when it's not right it's done over until it's done right! Who could ask for anything more? Windows is a mature insecure system. It will be even better when it's fixed per incident fee - HC] "Competing with Linux once filled Microsoft partners with dread, but now many are taking on the open source operating system with growing self-confidence -- and success. Here are the tactics for winning the fight." [ED: Even here they note they are not winning every battle, so they buck up the troops letting know of all the Linux shortcomings and how they can Win with Win(dows). They cite some big independent sources, e.g. Gartner, etc. It's always good to know your enemies plans - HC]
