I think it's a matter of popularity and marketing.  Which was better VHS or Beta?  Is Windows a better server than Linux, or is it just more popular and deeply ingraned?  I think it depends on your needs, and who's available to administer it.  Windows works, but in my opinion it's not as lean, agile and efficient as Linux.  By the way, Microsoft doesn't have near as much of a strangle hold on the server market as they do on the desktop.  And, there is one example I can think of where open source has won, and that's in web servers.  I know most CF shops use IIS, for some reason, but Apache currently holds 64% of the market: http://news.netcraft.com/archives/web_server_survey.html --------------- This transmission may contain information that is privileged, confidential and/or exempt from disclosure under applicable law.
