Forwarded from: JK Lists <wjcclistsat_private> <anotherRant> Even as a certified MCP & MCSE Windows 2000, I could not agree more! I have influenced many a customer to use MS products over the last 12 years, invested substantial time and $$$ in MS Certification, and I can't even get them to return my phone calls for support! What a business model! MS is going to bring themselves down. It is true that they are doing a whole lot more PR and legal wrangling to decrease their liability, while not really changing anything, other than piling the complete BS higher and deeper! Meanwhile, the open source community is working earnestly to EARN respect and their customer base, and has for years. Lots of former "MS Men", like myself are exploring our options and placing Linux, and other alternative OS's servers where NT/2000 used to be our #1 choice. I can ask a difficult technical question on any of the many Linux lists and have an answer within minutes. With MS, if you don't have your CC ready, even if your product is "still supported for free" because it is new, you better not hold your breath for an answer from MS tech support. </anotherRant> W James > Now which group is more security driven and which is more trying to > cover their ass.
