"Microsoft engineers have toiled for years to make the company's software 
industrial strength and worthy of large corporations' dollars. 

 Now the software giant faces a different challenge: fending off open-source 
alternatives that are good enough for most jobs. 

 At Microsoft's TechEd customer conference last week, executives spelled out 
the company's lineup to combat these cut-rate incursions onto its turf. 
In particular, the company is focused on improving its alternatives to the 
so-called LAMP stack, the combination of the Linux operating system, Apache 
Web server, MySQL database, and scripting languages PHP, Perl or Python. 
 Microsoft's anti-LAMP strategy is to heap features into its low-end products 
and to build a comprehensive set of tools--spanning development to 
management--in the hopes of making Windows Server more attractive."
