    Windows 2003 is a nice server platform.
    Linux is a nice server platform.

    Both have their uses.

    I didn't read past the first sentence which read

    IT WILL COME as no surprise that the tests involved, although performed by an independent lab, were sponsored by Microsoft

    It had to be funded by someone, i think that yea it might be slightly biased but the records are pretty clear cut.

    Nope, I've seen enough of these in the past that are sponsored by Microsoft and have learned to ignore them.

    The tests were conducted on 8-processor servers; And Windows is more mature with SMP, I still love Windows haters though.

    So now I'm a Windows hater? Alrighty then, if you say so. I work in a quite immense Windows environment (800 desktops around 50 servers) daily and enjoy it quite a bit most of the time. I just don't buy into Microsoft's marketing babble like most other people.

    I have Windows 2003 Enterprise installed with a dual boot with Windows XP Professional. I set up a StreamCast server on it and streamed a couple simpson episodes and MP3s. I like it, I plan on using it alot more.

    How the heck could you afford the $3,999 price tag on 2003 Enterprise?

    I dunno about windows 2003 but I do know why I use Linux: it's free, it works as well or better than windows for my uses(programming, gaming), and I have the source code. Plus I just love having 7 different tty's(consoles, you could say) running at the same time, along with 4 different GUI workspaces. Is it true that you will have to authenticate with MS servers to use your operating system? If so, I have a feeling it's going to suck to be a Windows user. It's kind of like your computer won't really belong to you anymore.
