part of the problem some people (including me) have with NT is how much
hardware it take to get decent results. Yes you can get good results if
you use a dual PII-233 with 256MB ram but if you can do the same job on a
P-166 with 64-128MB ram with a different OS why should you go with NT? yes
the graphics are nice but if this is a server that sits unless checked it
is often nicer to have a machine you can telnet into to manage.
