<b>The *nix marketplace - MS, Apple, Intel & AMD</b>

*nix enthusiasts are always concerned with the lack of uptake in the core server and desktop application distribution markets.

If such a takeup was to happen MS or Apple may turn their attention to the current ?safer? *nix markets of routers / firewall devices to makeup for the loss of revenue.

So would you buy such devices as listed above from MS or Apple??

Would you buy such a devices from other vendors such as Intel or AMD?

I'm not sure I understood your question.

Are you asking if I would buy a router/firewall device that had as its core os either MS or Apple?

MS no, Apple.... Eh, maybe. Apple(os x) has as its core Freebsd which is unix. Sure, why not.

So you are saying if the Cisco IOS switched to something like an MS core, would I buy it? No.

What about AMD and Intel?
