My main problem with ms is not their os are bad. Most of linux users lost time looking for ms os weakness. Linux is not perfect. Is true linux can do those things better since like 10 millions of years ago. They just take a good idea from something else, pay a lot of devs to make them user friendly, and they sell it to everybody.
Unfortunately, even though WHS does seem to have good points, MS never loses a chance to turn one of its products into a lock-in device
The lock-in device is the way to make a standard. Once a standard is there, then you can make all things user-friendly, because they can do just one thing for one kind of person, no need of config files so.
But my point is, the problem is about ethics, no tech. A guy is developing an os. It is the worst ever, but he is a nice guy, so no problem. If everybody buy his os, no problem. He wats to make a monopoly, now we have a problem.
The open source is a about ethic. If a country cant pay patents of meds, the people die (that happens, btw) So we need open source medicine. The same with software, but people dont die so, is not a big problem
It is not against the rules say something nice about Microsoft, but they are not nice people, Granny. They are not like you.
