Article Biased

By hhhammer ·
Geroski's article on "How are organizations using various network operating systems?" appears to be written without sufficient experience or expertise in the field and with a definite slant towards Microsoft. It does not provide much insight into the accurate description of NOS's. I have had 20 years of NOS experience including Microsoft, Linux and NetWare. To summarize: Most mature and easily administered - Netware; Most popular among network administrators - Linux (and other Unix varieties); Most immature, difficult to administer, staff support intensive - Microsoft. By the way NetWare is far more than just file and print (the common Microsoft diatribe). For ROI, I believe NetWare and Linux are the best bet. As an IT professional, I am much more prepared to stake my reputation and employment on these platforms. Note - eDirectory is probably the best tool for supporting a homologous NOS environment. I suggest a bit more detailed research in the future. Being a writer doesn'tgive license to such superficial content.
