And for those of us that like more than CSR jobs with irate customers... the choice is Linux.
Linux offers a company the opportunity to invest far less in their software needs and put that money into the people that they need to support it.
The reason descriptions of "stuff'esque" and "vista like" and fruu fruu poofy colors with candy apple greens on top is appealing is because Microsoft is writing that crap to the end user.
Us people that make the world go round would avoid Microsoft anything for most things simply because for "most" things, Microsoft products are inferior solutions. Its all a tool box, Linux or Microsoft. The important question is which serves a corporates needs better, and at this point Linux servers do nearly everything better than anything Microsoft can drip out a day late and a dollar short.
I think its more disgust than apathy.
