Microsoft It turns out that a lot of people haven't been paying attention. Over the weekend, a story about how Microsoft is earning more from HTC's Android devices than from its own Windows Phone 7 sales spread all across the web, with surprised reactions everywhere. Anyone who has been paying attention to Microsoft's recent patent trolling regarding Android could've seen this coming.

You've made the guy's point, your requirement is an MS stack, an ms server to manage ms clients... For anything else, windows server is a very poor choice. Even if you have a mixed client environment the ms server option is very poor.

And don't forget the security weaknesses of an ms network, attacks like hash spraying and token stealing combined with the flaws of wsus mean that its extremely difficult to keep such a network secure...

Yes, well my point was that at least here in Sweden Microsoft is pretty big (all workstations using Windows, everyone using Office and Outlook) so Active Directory and Windows Server fits pretty nicely into the picture.

Well if you don't have any other viable options, why wouldn't you "choose" Windows?
I reiterate my point again: Where Windows is a prerequisite - Windows wins. Elsewhere almost never.
