A troll obviously targeted at Karl and me ;-}
Actually, I think NT would be almost usable. I do indeed use telnet
servers and PC Anywhere over the Internet to easily achieve remote
access. And I use bash from the Cygnus toolset just fine.
The most stupid thing is that if you change ANYTHING that requires
the Windows NT disk be inserted and copied from, you must re-apply
service packs. There are scenarios that turn this process into hours
even when you use VERY FAST, fully supported hardware.
This is what truly sucks.
Oh, and NT threads are as heavy as Solaris processes. What can you
expect from the person who designed VMS, the world-record holder of the
"huge processes from hell" title.
