Sigh. First we had to say dot NYET and now Microsoft has renamed their server platform. Why don't they just get it over with and permanently rename it the Windows Insecure Server Platform (WISP)?

My primary desktop platform is Windows 2000 and I'm quite happy with it; the security issues that popup with desktops are easily managed and things like SPAM are a far greater daily annoyance. I also have a Mac OS X box. I don't have Linux running at home because I used to be a Unix admin and I have no desire to be one again at home. But I can assure you given the MS track record, I would be very reluctant to use an MS server product and would use some flavor of Unix simply to avoid the security nightmare that is the MS Server Platform.
