  • > I know a lot of folks that do Windows support. Most of them would LOVE to ditch Windows in favor of Macs or Unixen, even if it meant their job.

    You haven't met Real Windows weenies, then. Not real MSCEs. They would sell their granny (and usually already have) to do more Windows.

      I think we have one here. He was suggesting "upgrading" the Linux box to NT 4. He felt that even MS DOS 6 would be considered an upgrade. This is on his second day of scanning and patching after a Nachi worm outbreak in our office. Which, strangely, didn't touch our Linux boxes. Although it did screw us because work took down the entire internal network for a day (including expiring all the DHCP leases) so even or Linux boxes on the same segment couldn't communicate.

      I don't know what this has cost us in lost productivity for the building, but we estimate >£250,000. When will people start to realise the true total cost of ownership associated with MS Windows?
