My company has, maybe, a half-dozen Windows users. The rest of the
company is on Linux (primarily Ubuntu). We don't have an issue. I
imagine if/when we do, we'll simply migrate those users to Linux.

I heard (I could be way off here) that is the policy at Xmission.
Employees can use Windows, but once they get burned with
viruses/malware/etc, they get an Ubuntu CD as a "special prize".


World Domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world Optimization.
