In an article by Phil Hockmuth, he reports that Microsoft commissioned a survey that showed that Linux required 68% more maintenance time then Windows. Wow! what a suprise!!
(elsewhere, a survey said that opensource developers claim they can fix any security bug in less than 8 hours).
I love surveys. Especially ones that show results favoring the commissioning body. Phil, I love, apparently agrees and says "Don't pay too much
attention to industry surveys; do your own lab evaluations,
tests and pilot deployments, and see for yourself what works best" and "should be taken with a unit of sodium as large as a farm animal's salt lick."
Apparently Redhad and Novell agree.
We all know that email is now becoming the peanut butter that is gumming us all to a stop. I wonder how much productivity is lost in companies the create FUD and force others to respond.
Maybe there should be a law..oh I take that back since now the government might get involved. argh...
