    I'd love to work someplace where I can say and do ignorant things and still get paid top dollar.

    That sort of thing must be nice.

    I just don't get it. WTF? How can someone run a company like this? An OSS solution works *MUCH* better than an MS one but they want to try and get rid of the OSS solution. ??? I'm glad they still have the Gnu/Linux FTP server up 8)

    They wanna make money, right? So any sane people running a company would use the solution that costs less $$$, works more efficiently and keeps their customers happy (happy customers == more $$$).

    It can't be. I know they might be dickheads, and they might like M$ more in general, but goddamnit, don't they like money at all?! Maybe M$ is paying them or something. :P

    Do you think as time goes on this militant 'pro MS' attitude will vanish?

    Do you think it's fear of the unknown?

    One of my greatest fears is working for a company like that.
