I've always used the very existance of Linux to the "Windows is good
enough" argument of wintrolls.
Their argument that Linux isn't necessary is belied by the need people
felt to write it.
But, I guess the continuing legacy of Netware speaks to the serverside.
Obviously there people who felt that Windows filesharing and LAN were
so inadequate they they felt the need to continue using Netware.
