    So apparently after Microsoft bought Skype they decided to overhaul much of the workings of the network, ie using dedicated supernode machines instead of having users be supernodes.

    One would think that they'd use their in house server operating system, but no. Apparently they don't trust Windows Server enough when it comes to security, so they picked a Linux distro.

    Makes sense. Maybe they'll phase Windows Server out.

    So when open sores software applications are hosted on windows server do you draw the same conclusion ?

    The skype purchase is just to kill Google voice after all, Its not as if anyone at Microsoft gives a flying fuck about this shit software when we have

    Sometimes I just wonder what your problem is with free software.

    I don't care about software licensing it doesn't affect me unlike you i don't lavish praise upon abortions like open orifice because of licensing agreement that doesn't even fucking affect me.

    What i care about is weather the software is the best available and almost always that leads me to enterprise proprietary solutions like EDIUS,Promedia,Sharepoint,Exchange,Ericom,Acronis,solarwinds etc etc.

    If the licenses were swapped you would move because thats all you care about. I wouldn't
