PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has Windows Mobile 6.x (on the way out) Windows Phone 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded Compact 7 and then Windows 7 for tablet PCs and netbooks. What this bevy of systems is missing is a coherent answer for the tablet form factor. Windows Embedded Compact 7, which is the OS aimed at the mobile sector, isn't yet released, and when it is, it won't have a uniform UI, but will depend on hardware vendors to customize. It's an appealing strategy from the vendors point of view, I guess because they get to differentiate their products from their competitors, but it's not a recipe for success.

So you are basing your opinion of IIS on version 5? Are you kidding me?

RDP is an encrypted connection, just because it is graphical at both ends does not mean it is a security hole.

I already provided a link that showed how most Fortune 1000 companies use IIS, and yet you now claim that serious businesses don't use it.

What's it like being that deluded? You should listen to your Unix betters here, like Bill.
