In Australia, .NET hasn't got any foothold ????

There's been lots of talk in the blogosphere in relation to a recent post by Martin Fowler entitled - RubyMicrosoft. (** link fixed)

I don't want to get into the whole "AlphaGeeks are moving away from the Microsoft platform" debate, but there is one comment by Martin that I want to respond to.

Martin writes ....

In Australia, .NET hasn't got any foothold at all amongst our clients. I'm not sure what to make of this data. We aren't so big to be a statistically valid sample on our own. But it's a useful data point nonetheless particularly since we like to think our clients are the "alpha IT shops".

Martin,

I'll leave it there.

If anyone from "alpha IT shops" in Australia have an opinion - it would be nice to hear too
