Interesting news day for Linux announcements.
Netcraft reports that Windows 2003 is gaining Web server market share from
Sun announced its Java Desktop (Mad Hatter):
Has anyone spent time dissecting Windows 2003? I haven't tried it yet
myself. Anyone try running half a dozen large sites with it? I plan to
bring it up on a couple of servers to test. What Windows 2003 features are
making it acceptable as a replacement for Linux? From the Yahoo story:
"The encouraging thing for Microsoft is that [the usage increase] is showing
the world that there are some shared-hosting services on Server 2003," he
[Netcraft director Mike Prettejohn] said.
I saw Mad Hatter at LinuxWorld, and was unimpressed. How different is the
product Sun actually announced?
