Windows As you all know, Windows 8 will be the first release of Windows NT which supports the ARM architecture. Microsoft hasn't been particularly forthcoming about this new Windows variant, but that's changing today. The company has posted a long and in-depth blog post about Windows 8 on ARM.

Eclipse is the closest equivalent to Visual Studio and it's only good because it's backed by IBM and the Apache Foundation and gets a ton of resources. There is no real FOSS equivalent to Access, Exchange, SharePoint or .NET.


About your Eclipse comment, I was going to say that MonoDevelop is getting pretty good and is very similar in spirit to Visual Studio:

Then you said there was no FOSS equivalent to .NET which is absurd. First of all, there is a complete .NET clone--Mono.

Second, there are many other environments which are good substitutes or "equivalents" for .NET around. Many people might consider Java as a candidate for example.

There is an army of FOSS CMS systems; they own the market. Your other selections are worthy of a bit of debate but you certainly overstate things:
