I dont know about the rebooting thing, but anyone that can run a *NIX box for a year w/o one re-boot is probably running such a light load Windows would work just as well.
Nope. I'll try and find some of the information on it, but they weren't running light loads on it at all. I may be wrong about a lot, but one thing I know from when I was heavy into Linux is that *Nix, can, and always will outrun an MS Box, period. This will remain debatable until I turn up some information (or run my own tests for a couple years haha), so we may have to agree to disagree.
Do you stay away from banks because they are for profit?
Touche, however there is no such thing as an open source bank, and were there, I probably would deal with them because I am rather sick of every bank I've ever dealt with - the money it costs just to spend money is outrageous and I've had to deal with some rather large screw ups with money that I've kept in a bank, so again, if I had the option, I would deal with somebody else (which is why most of my money is in a safe in my office).
First off, your wording makes that message one of the most bias statements I have heard in a long time.
Again, no contest. I am biased, and while that may not come from the same experience as you, or somebody elses, I do have years upon years of experience using both systems in various situations. It's an opinion, and it's one I will defend.
Have you ever met anybody that works for them though? My best friends brother-in-law does, and that dude is brain washed when it comes to software. Severely brainwashed. He was impressed by some software my friend was running to them Windows. Until he found out MS put out competitive software and literally went off the hook on us because the software we were running was in direct violation of some MS crap... 'stolen' as he put it, even though we tried to point out to him that our software came out before MS's version. The dude was wacky. I wouldn't want somebody like him coming and trying to sell me software, because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt if there was something for half the price, that ran three times better, he'd try and tell me the sky was purple.
