  What about Mechwarrior or Quake II, can I run that on Unix and   will it run smoothly?  This is a fun debate, but   I do agree there will never be a winner.   -----Original Message----- <FONT

  I believe I've seen a shareware version of that out on the web   somewhere for various flavors of Unix with   X-windows.

    From the URL:

    PCs Stay Up and Running  
  Memory conflicts and missing or altered system files caused many of the   system crashes prior to Windows 2000. To put an end to these   problems, we changed Windows 2000 memory management to   reduce the chance that software applications will   interfere with one another.
    Applications runing in a seprate memory area...HMMMMMM   Unix did that 15 years ago.
    Fewer Reboots   Performing
  routine maintenance on your system requires significantly fewer   reboots, therefore less downtime, with Windows 2000. In   addition, with its support for Plug and Play, Windows   2000 automatically recognizes and adapts to hardware   changes. This means users can easily add hardware devices such   as scanners, DVD players, and speakers without rebooting, and   with less potential for user error.
    Reboots are also reduced-and reliability   increased-through the Microsoft hardware device driver   certification program. This program helps ensure that <FONT   size=2>hardware drivers are compatible with Windows 2000, and do not require   a reboot after installation. Certified drivers are   tested and digitally signed by Microsoft. If Windows   2000 detects a driver that Microsoft has not digitally   signed, it warns users about the risk before they install it on   their system
    Not having to reboot after installing an   application....Unix from it's beginings.     How Much More Reliable Is Windows 2000   Professional?   Third-party studies that assess   reliability from three different <FONT   size=2>perspectives-lab-based testing, customer-site measurement, and   user perceptions-conclude that Windows 2000   Professional is the most reliable desktop operating   system.
    Highest Reliability in Production Environments     NSTL collected uptime data in the real-world   environment of several customer sites and concluded   that the average system uptime between failures of   Windows 2000 Professional is 13 times more than that of Windows 98 and   three times more than that of Windows NT Workstation   4.0.
    Notice no comparison to Unix. It's like people that   hangout with socially unacceptable people to make   themselves look better (Hey! Wait a minute! Is that   why alot of people want to hang out with me? ). I guess you're right   they aren't the same. Unix posts much higher numbers.   

    Sorry, it's sarcastic Thursdsay here. I love the debate   about Windows and Unix. ;o)

        The same prediction was made at   least 5 years ago. At the rate Microsoft is going,   Windows will be a direct form of Unix. It becomes more <FONT   size=2>like it with every release.
