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

    Oh, and not only that, I like the GUI a lot more than I like     command based programming...unless.....can you play     solitaire on Unix:)   -----Original     Message-----   From: [<A     href="">]On Behalf Of     Rocky Welch   Sent: Thursday, February 01, 2001     3:28 PM   To: Multiple recipients of list     ORACLE-L   Subject: RE: OT NT2K vs Unix.     

      From the URL:

      PCs Stay Up and Running <FONT
    size=2>  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 <FONT     size=2>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 <FONT     size=2>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     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     like it with every release.
