Just read a very interesting blog post over at Windows Server HQ Blog by Lisa Szpunar .
In fact bloggers (and blog commenters) are hating on Windows Server 2008 Foundation all over the internet.
OK naysayers, it’s not your cup of tea. You suggest using a Linux or Lotus product instead. But you need to realize that if you are comfortable with the word Linux then you are not the target for this product. I say that Microsoft must have made it for a reason – but who is it for?
Lisa, I welcome you to try Lotus Foundations. Don’t be scared by the word Linux. You might notice that we don’t really advertise the linux part either in any of our advertising collateral. For the record, it is designed to not require any "Linux" knowledge at all . In fact, it is a plug and play appliance that you can just turn on and setup through a web browser within 30 minutes flat! No Linux required.
No Conficker here nor Patch Tuesdays? Come join the revolution. Save some money while you are it -keep one box running for years – whether you have 2 employees or 500 – with lower total cost of ownership than Windows based ‘Foundation’. Kinda like the magic box for the small businesses!
