while i agree, there must be some reasoning behind compiling stats on why
thing one is better then thing two. supposedly microsoft's strength is
in marketing, and they seem to think it a task worth spending money on...
marketing weasels aside, i honestly feel that explaining how tech works
and how to get certain tech to solve a certain problem are both much
more important then stat waving contests. i think most serious linux
developers and admins would agree to that. after all, the first method
given to compare linux platforms is "bogomips."
ps speaking of stats, has anyone applied microsoft's price/performance
formula to the c't tests?
