Haha well talk away, my clients love talking about linux, they don't
understand this whole opensource/free thing, think its mental even though I
have explained about support etc.

Could Ubuntu not develop a more user friendly home server ie just with samba
and maybe amanada or bacula for backups? Not all the extras.

Well I suppose it depends on where you work I guess. I work for a
reasonably large (130 staff or so looking after mabey 5000 desktops
and a couple of hundred servers) IT department which has
(unfortunately) standardised on Windows. I reckon less than 5% of them
would use Linux in any form :-(

In fact I think the only Linux servers that are used, are ones I look
after! I've had to stop talking about it at service meetings etc
though as people's eyes glaze over. At least I have you guys as an
outlet though ;-)
