My take on the solution - is windows will never go away until all
"windows" software can run "natively" within Linux.
For most business users, Windows could go away tomorrow. I've been
running my business entirely on Linux for more than five years.
Then why don't they ??
I think because they don't really care. For the business it doesn't
really matter if they use one or the other. There are also advantages
to staying with Windows - no staff adaption/training period,
availability of IT staff/externals.


Or they just can't get the support from any "other than Windows" suppliers!
Our company has just gone through the process, and were SERIOUSLY looking at a Linux solution (in particular, Novell).But after months of trying to get support, both off the web and locally (Qld, Aus.) we gave up and have gone for another Microsoft solution. Really frustrating!
