RE: microsoft's anti linux propaganda
I don't see anything wrong on those pages. I do see propaganda tough, like ANY other company would do.
But the things written on those pages are actually not wrong, they just don't give the complete picture, objectivly from both sides (which company would do that anyways to advertise their product?).
Also remember that it isn't only about stability, but also about the easyness of use. You can all argue that using *nix is easier, but the fact is that it isn't. A random person knowing nothing or not much about computers will find it easier to start with Windows than with *nix.
Also, a system engineer for *nix is harder to find and costs more than one for a Windows based system. All these things need to be taken in account. Hence why you see such lines as "With the Linux-based platform we would have a system crash at least once a week (because they don't have the knowhow to make it stable) Migrating to a Microsoft-based system has virtually eliminated server crashes and we have vendor support (There is much better official support for Windows than for *nix)."
