Keep it up!

I've been using Windows Server since NT and have always been happy with it. I have to admin, I'm also a huge fan of FreeBSD and Debian for their rock solid reliability, but when Microsoft introduced a Core version of Windows Server 2012 Datacenter, I knew things were coming along to try to truly compete directly with the open-source alternatives. Now that Nano server, with Microsoft Windows Server Essentials 2012 64Bit DVD Retail Box technology, is coming to the forefront with .Net Core going hand-in-hand with it, I can't see many reasons not to switch back to 100% Microsoft solutions. Thanks Microsoft and My choice Software, you're on the right track, keep it up but please, lower the damn price, we are not all super rich!
