I may not understand your questions correctly, however, so far I have read 3 of your posts. All seemed to be either provocative or linux degrading type statements. Posting questions such as how to migrate from linux to windows server applications in a Linux forum could even be viewed by some as antagonistic. To me, a windows forum would be the more appropriate place to ask those sort of questions. Having said that, Many linux users/administartors would probably be more than happy to explain to you how to do the migration, which, for even a slightly experienced/educated administrator, to be honest, is quite simple work really.
I don't question your right to prefer windows over linux, it is your right, and you should like whatever you wish. I am questioning the motives of an avid windows fan in a linux forum, always trying to circle back to the "windows rules" type statements.
You are correct that 90% of the market is cornered by MS products, 7% to Apple and 3% to *nix. I am not trying to argue the statistical fact or eveidence, or to be honest, even argue with you. Linux is on the rise now. It's usage is much higher than ever and growing. I could sit here and bash MS for all of the security holes and coding that leads to many of it's disadveantages. But, that's pointless, because it's just as easy to point out compatibility issues with *nix, the relative obscurity, and to some degree, application availability. These seem to be the biggest issues behing most MS v *nix debates I have read. Both are innaccurate and fail to address the real advantages/disadvantages of the OS themselves.
Anyway, to make a long post short, why would you do that?
All I have to say is http://iowaconsumercase.org/index.html
If I have it all wrong, then I apologize in advance.
Also, if I have stepped outside of my allowable conduct for a board member then I apologize to the mods and admins of this site as well.
