Windows "Almost a year on from the release of Microsoft's Windows Vista, only 13 percent of companies say they expect to move all desktops to the operating system, according to a survey released this week. Furthermore, adoption of Linux continues to gather pace, with a particular emphasis on the desktop emerging." As always, be sure to read these with a bag of salt on your desk.

MySQL doesn't handle NULL constraints:

None of the fortune 500 companies are running MySQL:

Oh wow they added NULL constraints after how many f--king YEARS?

Sorry "jerkweed" but you really do illistrate the complete and utter lack of professionalisim in the "Linux" world.

Look in the mirror, and you'll see why more people use Oracle, DB/2 and SQL Server then your precious crap for real production systems.

And no, IRC web pictures are *NOT* mission critical anything. Show me something major, like a stock trading system, missle control, nuclear operations.

Yeah of course there isn't any.

How about Yahoo? That does count as a Fortune 500 AFAIK... Besides, what do you know about missile control or nuclear operations anyway? I VERY highly doubt they use Windows there...(As a little hint: most likely they use some proprietary OS specifically built for their hardware and have all they sources available so they can modify them as fast as possible whenever the need arises)

Yet, it is now there .... but you said that it wasn't. Ass-hat.

Probably running a hardened UNIX or proprietary OS.

But not Windows. Dear Lord, I hope not, anyway.

Windows for the desktop (for now -- Ubuntu is pretty damn good), Linux for servers..
