The comparison to Hezbollah. There is not one item to compare between "tech fanatics" and Hezbollah -- only contrast.

I personally am not an Open Source (O.S.) weenie, and some folks are O.S. fanatics etc (usually you find these in the Linux fan-boy club but they probably exist everywhere) but I have yet to see a MS solution that was the best solution to a given problem. Not that they don't exist, but the negatives of being trapped in a MS proprietary hell forever far outweigh any advantages over the long haul. I have personally seen to m any businesses who get trapped and cannot get out because of the proprietary nature of the data storage (file formats, etc), even when they want to. YMMV.

You really are out of touch, aren't you.

Yawn.... You are exactly what I'm talking about.


Oh, a person who writes a god damn book about integrating both MS
solutions
and
FreeBSD?  See http://www.freebsd-corp-net-guide.com/

You just proved to the world your talking out your ass.
