I will agree. Not because I am convinced Windows is that inferior an operating system but rather because after seeing Windows in the data center for more than a decade I am convinced that Microsoft certified Windows admins are an inferior lot.

The "average" *NIX admin can run circles around the most senior Windows admins.

I've no doubt there are some real geniuses at Microsoft, H/P and IBM that know what they are doing. But these people are not working as FTE's at any customer site I've ever visited.
