had a teleconference today in which a developer for a company who provides a company i consult for with a web app said we couldn't run their application on Linux because "it's a Windows-only application."
i replied, "uh, but it's just PHP and MySQL isn't it?"
to which the developer said, "Ummm... i suppose you could look at it that way too." he said his installer script was for windows only though; i suggested that i'd be able to handle copying the files by hand on Linux. he said we'd be the only company running it on Linux; i said that we wouldn't be the last, especially if they stopped telling people it was a "Windows only app". what a maroon.
of course, this is the same person responsible for a program that deletes customer contact information without confirmation or restoration capabilities by clicking on a "Delete" link that sits right next to the "Edit" link. *sigh*
