Having mucked around in the innards of both NT and many of the Unix/Mach
variants, I find NT to be the Land Rover/HMMV in the OS auto sales lot. It
certainly weighs a lot, it may suck down resources, but its disk rotors
won't warp from a little mountain driving.
PS. Regarding #7 - I actually have a ZX-81 in my office. It wears a label
saying "Network Computer". Although to keep up with changing times, I
should probably rename it to "Web TV".

Subject: Best OS
Lets just put our cards on the table here.
My list of the best.
1) NeXTStep/OpenStep - if you don't understand this being #1 heaven help
2) Solaris- this is what I call the 1969 Chevelle SS 454 OS. it doesn't
handle, you can't stop it, but put the pedal to the metal and hold on.
3) tie - Linux/MacOS - Linux is simply the best consumer "real" OS
available, and the Mac is still the best consumer OS.
4) Win NT 4.0 - tacky interface slapped on a so so OS
5) OS/2 - too bad...
6) Win 95 - good for playing games using the kernal (DOS), should have
abandoned years ago. tacky white trash version of a gui interface.
7) Timex Sinclair Z-80 - hey anything could beat #8
8) Win 3.1 - no comment
