Windows has a hard-earned reputation for appalling security and 
reliability but, better late than never, has matured into a relatively 
stable and secure desktop and server problem. Windows can run many 
popular open source desktop applications and has an incredibly-long 
history of on-again and off-again supporting Unix/POSIX environments 
such as Interix/SFU and Cygwin, and now ships with Linux emulation. 
These tools vary wildly in their depth of frustration to Unix users but 
do provide a gateway to some extremely-interesting yet 
intentionally-vague open source opportunities that will be demonstrated.
