Babwa Wawa: Big win for me, but Amazon is my platform, and I'm probably running Linux and MySQL. Windows (and Microsoft) is increasingly irrelevant to me as an IT supplier

My company bought into this philosophy four years ago, and every admin got certified on Red Hat. True to form, no one bothered to check and see what our enterprise software suites actually required, so in the past four years we've deployed about 50 linux servers, all single purpose, and around 750 Windows servers. Our Oracle systems are run by five rabid Unix sysadmins who live under the sub-basement of our headquarters. Occasionally we'll open the door to their room and throw in 40 pounds of coffee and an old Hustler.

Windows is losing share, but not that fast.

Windows 8 is fine, unless you're one of those "It's the year of linux on the desktop this year, for REALS!" nitwits.

The people who will be pissed about W8RT will be the ones who fix PC's on the weekend for beer money(me) since RT is so sandboxed. I'm getting W8 x86 for my desktop and a Surface pro
