Hey! Don't try to confuse me with the facts. NT is/will succeed because it
turns a rickety OS into a 'serious' desktop. It has more momentum now than
Unix ever had. In spite of all of the technical nits that we all love to
pick. It is because of perception. Perception is Reality!
Not much of a defense I know. But just hide and watch what the market does.
