      Windows still has a 25% usage share in server space.

        Tons of in-house proprietary stuff has been written in .NET well before .NET became cross platform, and many companies are unwilling or slow to invest the resources to make them not require Windows.

          Really I am not that sure that Microsoft still holds 25% There is for sure a downwards trend in Microsoft Windows usage in servers. The numbers say somewhere between 10% and 25% with more of the stats numbers being closer to 10 percent for Windows.

            there are plenty of IT clowns in the US willing to bend over and lick the boots of windows at the drop of a hat.

              Hmmm. I guess this means the next Windows LTSC release will be based on Windows 11? At least the last one seemed to follow Server anyway... Definitely the best of the Windows releases if you're forced to use Windows, it's too bad it wasn't updated at least once.

                AD and Sharepoint is all that 99.999999999% of businesses need.

                    Yes. Other than on-prem stuff, their cloud customers need to know, as well. Just because many companies are using cloud services doesn't mean they're going to move away from Windows Server. Good luck getting legacy corporations to give up their Exchange servers. They just move it to Azure, if compliance regulations allow it. If it doesn't, or they don't trust cloud services reliability (and they shouldn't), they run Windows Server + Exchange + AD + w/e on-prem.
