Windows Microsoft is continuing its efforts to simplify its product lines, and has cut the number of versions for the next release of Windows Server down from twelve to just four: Datacenter, Standard, Essentials, and Foundation. Pretty straightforward. Windows Home Server gets axed, but then again, I don't think anybody bought Windows Home Servers anyway.

I have a lot of money and I don't know where to spend it. I will switch from Unix to Windows to pay a lot of CAL licenses.

Maybe that is one reason.

Windows licenses are cheaper than commercial UNIX ones.

In most multinationals the amount of money spent in licenses is irrelevant when compared with the total operation costs.

Quite right, when I visited some of our customers it felt no different than using a PDP-11.

Many commercial UNIX boxes are using the default tools from System V days.

Back in 2000, when we were doing Solaris configurations, the first thing after getting the system running, was to install all the GNU tools from Sunfreeware.
