> Microsoft. Many Linux system administrators protested and said that
> Linux was not well tuned. Thank you all who pointed me to the rebuttals
> that were written by people that had time to look into the details a
> little more than I did. The whole thing created quite a stir again in
> the ongoing controversy.

> None of them do. I install, use, and support NT, Solaris, Linux,
> IRIX and MacOS in my work environment. Cut the jabber - learn from
> others how to pick and choose the "best" OS for the application at
