I'm not jumping on one side or the other but I wanted to make clear on
something.  The fact that IBM or Oracle use windows has absolutely zero
to do with reliability or stability.  They are there because the market
is willing to spend money on their product.  Let's face it, the share
holders of each respective company would come unglued if the largest
software audience in the world were completely ignored.

Simple fact is, your example really is pretty far off from supporting
any view.  Bluntly stated, both are in that market because they want to
make money; they're even obligated to do so.
