Get The Facts: Halloween XI

Get The Facts on new Microsoft's Get The Facts show on the OpenSource.org site. If you happen to attend one of the shows, Halloween XI recommends to ask:

  • How many Linux machines have been zombied by Netsky, Sasser, MyDoom, or similar worms? Do your Windows TCO estimates include administrator time spent cleaning up after these infestations?
  • Can you explain why Windows IIS websites are cracked or defaced more often than Apache ones, despite the fact that IIS runs less than a third the number of sites Apache does?
  • Is Microsoft willing to add a hold-harmless clause to Shared Source licenses that protects shared-source licensees against being sued by Microsoft for alleged IP violations related to the software? If not, then please explain again how Shared Source is just the same as open source?
I'm curious to know answers on those questions by myself. :-)

How did Ghandi put this?
first they ignore you
then they ridicule you
then they fight you
then you win
