The part of that interview that enraged me most was the blatantly untrue
inference that windows2000 runs on the widest platform base of any OS out
there. The microsoft guy didn't explicitly say that but he definitely
inferred it. Does it run on PPC (mac/rs6000 etc.), VAXen, amiga, sparc,
etc? I don't think so.
