Subject Re: CloudStack MS on Windows - thoughts?
Date Wed, 20 Nov 2013 23:55:36 GMT
I'm naturally alergic to windows as get severe migraines within half hour of using it.

With that, Windows is still a very significant portion of the market and I can't think of
any open source cloud platform that runs on Windows or cross platform.

Considering that 99% of ACS code can run on windows it would make a lot of sense to have Windows
support - even if its "experimental" at the early stage.

The number of windows shops on east coast is greater than linux shops. Thats a huge market
and can be a great marketing gain for us.

Just think of headlines and PR alone ;)

I would have taken this on myself, but I have to much of knowledge drift there.

That is true.  There have been folks that have said - ³that¹s nice but we
don¹t really know Linux.²   That said, I love me some Linux so keep the
Windows versions away from me :)
