Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

I'll have to take your word for that then.

Our server room (well, it's more of a mini data center these days) is all HP and Cisco gear but we run Nagios and of such open source tools for all the monitoring tools. From what (albeit limited) exposure I've had with other data centers, it looked like they used the same or similar packages.

I'll have to give HP another look ;)
