I have no idea, as no experience do I have with either.

Well, perhaps a tiny bit with MS windows 2008 server core, but not on the level you speak of...

But the following general rule seems to apply everywhere I look:

MS products have more users than any of their competitor's do, and at the same time have more bugs/issues than any competitor does.

I just got annoyed. Their command line tools have no coherence and everyone has different rules for adding details. Some are case sensitive, some are not. Some give feedback, some don't. They need to go back and come up with an overall structure that all the tools adhere to.

I'm gonna go with "both of them", since I've never heard of either one of them and don't know what they are.
If they were worth a crap, I'd know about them.

Naw. But I'm not much into tech stuff.
I'm sort of resistant to it, actually.
I resisted touching a computer until was in my thirties, and driving a car until last year. :lol:

I've never used either one, but I still voted Ipad. That thing is completely and utterly useless. It has all of the downsides of a smartphone and a netbook, and none of the benefits of either.

Write a program for that, and sell it as a 3rd-party add-on. You'll be rich...

Heh.

I'm going with the iTampon. While 2008 Server Core sucks, at least you don't have that pompous windbag Steve Jobs telling you what you can and cannot do.

Screw Apple.

Nothing to do with hating large companies. Everything to do with crappy useless products or configuration tools that are incoherent to the point I would have to keep a command reference open to do basic tasks.
