Microsoft Windows Server Confusion

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 3, 2010.

  1. Seems like Microsoft’s server efforts revolve around bringing out as many
    variations on the same basic product as they can
    <http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/theres-another-new-windows-server-in-the-microsoft-pipeline/7866>.

    Haven’t they heard of “modularity� That’s how a single Linux distro can
    address a whole range of roles, based entirely on what combination of
    packages you choose to install. Adding and removing roles is as easy as
    adding and removing the right packages; and you can change your mind at any
    time.

    But no, that kind of flexibility doesn’t fit into the proprietary software
    business model. They want to make sure that old cash register goes ka-ching
    every time you want to do something new. And so the marketing department has
    to divide up the customers into different segments somehow, so they can be
    targeted with different products, regardless of how the customers themselves
    feel about it.
