The whole Linux uprising is ludicrous from a purely economic stand-point. Many do not want to pay for software now that Linux is widely available for free (or very cheap). But, in actuality, more resources go into software, whether it is man-hours or intellectual property than into your Cisco router. People cannot continue to support a cause like this, as it will destroy the software market and crater productivity.
I’m not sure what to say to this. I’m of the mindset that there are different tools for different jobs. Sometimes Windows or a commercial project running under Windows is the solution, sometimes an open-source solution is best. Every situation is at least slightly different.
Perhaps we should shut down the 10,811,987 sites that run Apache.
