There are Microsoft shops out there, and there are some that I've worked with that are happy with Microsoft.

There are IBM shops out there, and there are some that I've worked with that are happy with IBM.

There are Best of Breed shops, (LAMP/OSS/etc) and they are happy as hell.

There are Oracle shops out there, and never have I heard a client say "We Love Oracle!"

The software was Xfree86 vs Xorg. The quickest way to get up to speed on the politics of that fork is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X... XFree86 was the default X server for 15+ years till it made a nasty license change and all the distributions dropped it like a hot potato for Xorg in 2009.

Comment Re:Do they make high-quality LTE bridges? (Score 1) 107

We have a Cradlepoint MBR1200B with Verizon LTE service as tertiary fail over for our headquarters. The router is about $800 for router + modem + replacement 4G antennas. $500 for a static IP from Verizon. $50 a month for a sim and basic service. (If we ever need it, we expect to pay overage.)
