Actually it is not that bad. The company I work for used a lot of proprietary systems. For example, we are running our own framework and the database being used is IBM DB2. Windows is challenging when interfacing with third-party/opensource tools, but it is not because the OS is inherently bad, it is because not many people took the time to create software for windows.

I've read so many horror stories on Windows (from people actually working at microsoft), that I have a hard time believing you when you say it's "not inherently bad". ;)

Also, software engineering is difficult enough as it is, and not having access to the source code to track a hard bug is really something I wouldn't want to try.

when it comes to software development a lot of people have issues because they have limited access to the system that they are working on. I have full access so I can install whatever tool I need to make it work well with my code.
