I would completely abandon MS if I could. But the reality is that MS is
permeated into everything computing there is.
Unless you try very hard, you can't avoid some interaction with MS products.
The list is full with incidences where people have been
struggling with MS products and inoperability with their creations.

The truth is, you can't avoid MS, you can just do the best to make sure your
programs/services co-hibit with MS's without too much of a
perfomance/experience hit to the end user.
