What's so bad about Microsoft? ... let me count the ways ...UNIX strengths and weaknesses is a balanced view. However, the security flaws in Microsoft products are so many that you have to wonder why Microsoft hasn't been sued out of existence by class actions arising from product liability and corporate downtime. The probable reason, in my opinion, is because there are too many corporate decision makers who are too embarrassed to admit how easily led they were by marketing hype and empty promises. I guess that's what MS solutions providers and their corporate sales force mean by "strategic relationships". MS and its minions, and the client decision makers, have too much to lose by a suit. It reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino movie, which almost always ends with a stand-off. Art imitating life or life imitating art?
