'Tis a sad day

<walks out of the shadows>

'Tis a sad day as our techs have just turned off the last of the NetWare servers. Now we are a M$ shop with the unsurprsingly number of extra servers, increase in workload and all the other non-benefits that come with it.

Sigh ....

Bill Gates: Tis a glorious day. I feel another company has joined the
dark side.

I will be turning off my last Netware server soon as well... but mine are being
replaced with leeenux, not winblows...

Just give them absolutely horrible support, and take forever to fix the
problems... that'll show them that NW was better. That is, if your job is
secure.

Did that a couple of years ago. IMO, Linux is a much better fit for SMBs(co
cals or crap like that), which is the majority of the market in my
location.

The only reason we have a windows server is because of SQL Server
requirements. If we didn't need SQL Server we wouldn't have Windows
Servers.

They would work fine if the developers of the software that requires SQL
Server would use them.

Usually isn't a companies choice, but vendor imposed.

Re: 'Tis a sad day

And that I feel is the crux to the problem. Oh, and that our parent company (a German bank) are a M$ shop so we have to follow their line and it is also hard to find people who aren't Bill Gates groupies to "talk the talk" of non M$ based systems.
Well it is very difficult here in the Channel Ilses.
