  1. Wonder how those ads will look like...

    Now I wonder how much FUD the ads will bring...

    And nobody's talking about where WinNT's roots are: VMS, VAX, PDP-11, same as most Unix-OS's.. not to mention all that code copied from FreeBSD &c.

    Think we use some manner of Unix at work for our servers to, they mess up regularly enough I guess but the workstations themselves are NT4 & supposedly Windows 2000 (Not that I'vre seen them) with a decent few things to stop you doing stuff you shouldn't be. Literally 3 minutes after I put up a background wallpaper I was being asked by others how to, lol, ahh they may disable display properties but not MS Paint ;)
    Darn, forget what the system is now. Telnet's a regular use of mine as well, not as bad as I thought it would be. Actually maintaining a list of problems I find with the system so hopefully the next time they decide to update DIP my fixes will be in.

    Funny bit in the Email help where it warns about using Internet explorer & you must have a good reason to use it over netscape, not that you'd regularly have net access anyway without an account.
