Windows The rumours about Windows possibly being ported to ARM has left a lot of people bewildered; why would you port Windows NT when Windows CE 6.0 is a perfectly capable operating system? Putting all the pieces together, it's actually quite clear why you would want Windows NT on ARM: servers.

You really have zero understanding how close Linux guys are.


The Linux guys are always infinitely close - but never quite there.

while in other aspects, windows guys are infinitely far and will never be even close. instead of wasting money on generic solutions one can order tailored ones for that money and get way more bang for same amount

all depends on what one needs. if i'd be moving me or any of my customers on windows i'd be crippling them with added additional costs. all software they need and services are already tailored to linux primarily and there simply is no simple and cost effective way to introduce windows and generic solutions you name. (i just introduced this aspect from my point of view to produce contra to your personal aspect. I'm not even nearly bashing ms products. if anything... i say "use the hammer that works for your nails")

Not true. It takes a long time to get all the interlinked parts work work. Did not help that a Legal case had to be won and MS made obey to get the information to get this close.

Illegal actions is market kept MS possition. Linux was doing quite well even gaining before 2000 and MS illegal action. Basically the same thing that shot Novell shot Linux. Not been something simple to recovery from.
