Windows Now this is interesting. Microsoft developer Garrett Serack has acknowledged that it is generally easier to roll out a, for instance, complex stack of open source server software on Linux than it is on Windows. He also offers a solution - he's working on a project to bring package management to Windows. This project will be community-driven, and Serack has the full blessing from Microsoft.

microsoft has finally nailed one serious issue on the head.

if they succeed it will remove one of the advantages of linux that makes it more comfortable to develop on.

i don't know about you, but i find it quite scary that they took this problem seriously.
