"Please consider the big picture before posting...
I always consider the big picture. That is why every OS has it's place in my shops. I do not play favorites, and keep OSS out of places where it does not belong, just as I keep proprietary out of places it does not belong
The big picture includes all the OS's, this article however was not about that
Correct indeed... at last we agree on something...
I agree that the article was not about "all of the OS's". However, OS's other than Windows do form part of the big picture, as you've rightly mentioned.
My original post was simply aimed at giving praise where it is very due - that there are at last a few IT shops around who are realising that they do not have to stay in lockstep with Microsoft. Aaron Seigo (one of the KDE developers) has highlighted this in one of his blog posts here -
That is all I was getting at - to quote him, "the market has choice and it knows it".
The more that this happens, the better it is for everyone.
Now, I'll fade back into the woodwork and watch my ratings plumb the depths...
