    Read little more than just heading.

    Yeah, they are just two, Zetec and Duratec , you are right. I am not telling that they just cut street bike and put it's engine in the car. The influence is so strong so all new engine need more motor oil just like bike engine.

    Agreed. It's pretty sad that a company as big as MS that has done everything in it's power to eliminate competition can't develop something good enough for their own servers. That's like Ford designing a car with a Toyota engine in it - doesn't mean the product will be bad but it's a bit hypocritical.

    Both of those are joint efforts of Chrysler and Mitsubishi, so, no Ford involved. Anyway many companies do joint efforts like that. Chrysler also merged with Fiat, Daimler, and I think Renault too. The point of my comment was 2 competing companies using resources from each other (since Ford and Toyota, to my knowledge, have no business ties).

    Microsoft's bread and butter remains exchange, outlook, office, and windows. Windows Server/MSSQL still remains a mainstay of my day to day corporate IT work. That doesn't look to change any time soon. Linux still hasn't got a Microsoft SQL Server implementation and until it does it won't be used by many companies. We still can't replace the Windows server stack in many environments because of a lack of software on Linux. I know that a lot of people would argue for mysql/alternatives and they are great alternatives. But companies don't want to change from what they know, and it's actually the client apps on Windows that would need updating to let Linux in on the server side.
    Won't happen any time soon.

    Projects like Samba 4 and Openchange are awesome. It's unfortunate that Openchange can't be managed by the Exchange Management Console, but Samba 4 has done an insanely cool job. Personally I want to see the Windows Remote Server Admin tools running on ReactOS with an RDP Server/Client as well. We would seriously consider installing ReactOS for management + Linux DCs on Virtual hosts at some of our clients if that was available.

    I think Linux needs to focus on individual markets, eg take on Office with Open Office, take on gaming with SteamOS/SteamBox/Steam, take on Flight simulator market by getting support for all the new/old peripherals and getting the engines ported/supported via emulation. As each market falls to Linux it snowballs other markets.

    Don't they still use FreeBSD for Outlook since the days they bought Hotmail? I think they tried to replace FreeBSD with Windows Server but it didn't perform as good as with FreeBSD, yet they still tried to hide that fact when querying the servers directly after they rolled back.
