Re: Rant, indeed.
Never seen Win95 OSR2 crash? I am the network
engineer for a fairly large bank, and I see Win95
(all flavors) and Win98 crash all day long.
Sometimes badly. I have designed a linux based
setup that uses NFS to restore a generic drive
image so that my entire week isn't spent fixing
messed up FAT's and registries. But converting
1000 computers at 80 remote locations to linux is
not possible. Nor is retraining 1000 people on how
to use the different interface. Most of my users
are so inept that I have to send someone out to do
a standard Office install. Convert all these
computers to Linux? Can't do it. Suffer constantly
from MS shortcomings? Job security :-)
