The fine bloggers over at Lockergnome’s Linux Fanatics blog have written an excellent, detailed rant about the huuuuuuuuge PITA they experienced when they migrated web sites from one Windows/IIS machine to another. Reading it, my heart was gladdened anew that I use LAMP (and MAMP: Mac OS X, or just plain ol’ AMP, as Apple evidently wants to call it) for my client’s web sites. I’ve run client sites on Windows/IIS before, and it is truly a hellish experience. Read this one from Lockergnome if you want to feel his pain, and appreciate why it is that you use open source software so you don’t have to experience this stuff.
