Comment Re:Can't Lock Linux Down (Score 1) 863

This was exactly my point, and you are the first one to actually agree with me 100%. People have taken this as a flame war against Linux. I love Linux for servers. In fact, I will never use a Windows box as a server, unless the company wants to run SharePoint or something. What's the point? I believe Linux is the best server solution out there, for many reasons. Many businesses concur. Most of the companies I work for have both Windows and Linux servers, but the major systems usually run on Linux (unless they are a .NET shop).

But for the desktop, the business needs [of locking down everything] just aren't as plentiful or powerful as the Windows based solutions. You have countless vendors who offer lockdown software, which hook into the Windows API (probably even hidden API's given to the Vendors by MS themselves), plus the support of MS for locking down the workstations across the enterprise.

Use the Force, Luke.
