Since that take casts me amongst the "idiots", I beleive it has always 
been the case that a company adopts what it can best support.
One end of that is windows, thru Linux to Solaris at the other extreme.

Personally I'd rate the other end in the "idiot" category, but then that 
is only my [expert] opinion and YMMV.

When I find another way that can let me recover Tb of nfs and cifs file 
systems from an OS rebuild, in under 60 minutes, then my opinion might 
change. Until then, it is still the best ZFS platform I have available.
