Slightly OT, but I've always found Linux gurus are the best people
to ask about MS problems,
as they seem to have an overall view of the system
which even the most expert MS people never seem to match.
I guess the Linux guy has a picture of the Linux kernel in his mind
with Microsoft components substituted.
My impression is that if you ask an MS expert about some problem
his reaction is to look into 1000 pigeon-holes in his mind,
and see if he finds the problem and answer in one of them.
Usually he does, but if he doesn't he tries to persuade you
that you have a different problem.
