Doc and Dave and David are talking about operating systems.  I somewhat take issue with the fact that the base OS is commoditized; OS issues are still quite relevant.

Bottom line: if you care about getting software out to your users as quickly and as broadly as possible, the code beneath you that you can leverage makes a world of difference.  When it comes to time and money, leverage counts.  It's not a commoditized environment: things like the choices of OS, tools, and environments like .NET do indeed matter. 

But that's just my opinion. [Ray Ozzie's Weblog]
