"You can't buy advertising this good. When Microsoft takes time
out to publish a point-by-point attack of your software product
(www.micro soft.com/ntserver/nts/news/msnw/Linux Myths.asp), you
must be on to something. And since Linux and related products
command only a thimbleful of IT purchasing, I can only assume that
Microsoft is going to do anything it can to derail the Linux hype
machine before Linux can compete more effectively."
"Microsoft's rant makes some good points about Linux's
weaker aspects. But when one recalls what a joke Windows NT Server
4.0 was a mere three years ago, it's clear that the weak can get
stronger through perseverance. The Oct. 4 update of Red Hat
Linux 6.1 proves that Linux is adroitly moving ahead."
"High availability is starting to be addressed with the addition
of Piranha, software that lets you build a two-node Linux cluster.
The key element is the Linux Virtual Server kernel routing patch
that lets the two-node cluster act as a front end for a Linux Web
and FTP server farm."
