It's a shame Microsoft has been able to leverage its desktop monopoly into a near-monopoly in the fileserver market, when NetWare is so superior. Oh well, guess I can root for Linux.But, if a lot more people than you have that attitude, that'll virtually gurantee that it comes true -- you'd be helping the prophecy of Netware's demise to become self-fulfilling.
So what's next -- if or when Linux isn't an immediate M$-killer, let's abandon it, in turn, for something new? Maybe that's one of the many things that keep the Redmonopoly going: We can't seem to stick with one competitor long enough for it to have time to work. (Bye, OS/2!)*
Note that I am not accusing or blaming you personally, Kelzer (Oh, BTW: Hi, and welcome!), of anything; just pointing out that a lack of perseverance, an inability to unite around one "main competitor" at a time (for a little longer than a Warhol Fame Period**), may be a real existing reason for the persistence of Bill's stranglehold over the computing public.
Just a (sad) little observation that came to mind, reading your post.
