Hey, I haven't had to reboot my NT Server for more than a year. Of course, I
only use it as a print server and to validate Win95/98 logins so I can have
some idea what my kids are doing and when.
Actually, I'm in the process of un-MSing my home network. I've been into
Unix since the mid-70's. I got my first Mac in '86. I bought my first PC in
'93 to run NextStep. I got NT Server and SQL Server for free a couple years
ago for attending a Microsoft meeting. Now I'm going towards Linux and MacOS
X. I hope to be MS free by the end of the year.
I might still use MS Office but that's about it.
