People write free software mostly to help themselves. Given the
unbelievable depth and breadth of the FOSS eco system why would
anyone bother with the M$ mess. There are relatively very few
projects specifically attempting to solve a M$ism. CIFS for example,
and doest it WORK? IMO it is better than anyting M$ can come up with.
ANy attempt to imitate M$isms would be a ridiculosly retrograde step.
As a perespective, M$ announced increased revenues due to increased
uptake of Vista, by users switching from XP. It is well known that
the migratory path is full of deep holes, yet the admins / users
prefer a steep cost, the old mess + the new mess.
Do rid yourself of romantic notions of "helping" a bunch of morons.
