"Mike Dailey, a Cisco engineer, is one of these bloggers. He started his current blog a few months ago after he accepted a job at Babcock & Wilcox. Whether that is a coincidence is anybodies guess. Although he has been blogging for only three months, you will find some very interesting articles here, like "Why Enterprise Adoption of Linux Is Slow", "Why You Shouldn't Use Linux" and "The Need for Linux, Microsoft and Open Source".

"His love for Linux is well known. He tells us over and over again he is a real Linux proponent and wishes Linux and FOSS all the best in the future, which he has well drawn out.

""We need Microsoft leading the way because of their market share in so many software technologies, but we need them to stop trying to take over the world and begin to show technical leadership of the industry. Microsoft could easily take Linux and Open Source under their wing, to help this alternative mature and to help guide them down an avenue that is best for everyone."
