The sad truth? Yes! CFOs, CEO, CIOs and COOs are buying
into the MS hype and FUD machne at an alarming rate! While many
smaller shops are moving to Linux, most larger corporations don't seem
to get it. The CFOs seem to think that MS products are cheaper,
the CIOs seem to think they are better for their IT staff and users,
and the COOs buy into the marketing hype.
MS claims their patch managment is top of the line (it isn't) and very
easy to deploy (it isn't). MS also claims that Linux costs far
more than their bloated POS.
I'm a Red Hat kinda Linux user, but I feel at home in any flavor.
Why? Because across all distributions there are MANY
commonalities that just don't exist in the MS family. MS needs to
get its act together or more and more home and business users will just
drop it and more to either *nix or OS X (ya...I know it is BSD, but it
has its own special flavor)
