"When was it proven that Windows is the only enterprise ready OS? "
Around year 2000 when Win2K was released, undisputed till now."
Undisputed by whom ? Citations ?
"Wanna argue ? Don't, because you obviously never tried manage tens of thousands of either Windows or non-Windows desktops.
Must have come as a shock to all those enterprises who ran, or are running, on Solaris, HP-UX or AIX then..... probably news to CERN too (see e.g. Quattor). Many have moved to Windows, or other *nixes, but that can hardly be attributed soley to the extent OS being 'not ready' for the enterprise.
Note - i'm not slating Windows as far as enterprise deployment goes, I am disputing it's the only enterprise ready OS.
"Your comment about the Linux desktop is particularly childish."

Quite frankly, one of the best examples of proving the OPs point i've seen ever... genius !
