If Linux is superior, why would they not develop their product on
Linux? Perhaps because they had experienced better stability on NT?

Does it not seem likely to you that this Daryll Strauss (admittedly a
linux fan) might be one of the people referred to in the usenet
article - "The choice of linux for the other farm was merely a
convenience for two programmers (the ones who wrote the article), who
could have easily ported command-line code to NT as well as Linux" it
does to me. Moreover, the Linux Journal has a commercial interest in
people believing Linux is superior to NT - I wouldn't trust the LJ any
less or any more than any other publication or organisation.
