"Enterprise IT managers shouldn’t hesitate to look into the option of deploying open-source stacks on a Windows Server platform. For some businesses, this will truly be the best of both worlds."
I’ve always been intruigued by the possibilities of using open-source tools on Windows. Early on I was a huge fan of development tools like NAnt and NUnit, and this year I’ve spent a lot of nights and weekends getting up to speed on MySQL (which works fabulously on Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP). It seems to me like there’s a chasm between between Windows developers and open-source tools and technologies built to make their lives easier, which always seemed like a pity to me.
