And regretting every day of it
I know some Netware customers who got succered by the MS-reps lies
In one case a single netware server had to be replaced by 4 ( *four!!* )
NT-servers to handle the exact same load. Needless to say, the 4
NT-machines were much faster hardware
In that case, when the MS-stooges were unable to get some token-performance
out of their shitty OS, they could pack all their stuff after the netware
server was restarted
Last I heard was that it was replaced 4 years ago. By a linux server (and a
backup-machine, identically configured)
The parts of a computer system that can be kicked.
