What adds intrigue is that Windows 98 has the 'look and feel' of a 
browser.   So if the browser IS the operating system, that'll put an 
end to the question of MS's attempt to monopolize PC environment and 
browser software.

Interesting that Info Week 10/13 edition points out that NT 5.0 would 
be competing with the midrange market  "where  much enterprise 
computing is being done."    

Imagine, install new software, reboot the system.  Never installed 
software on the 400 that required a reboot.  What's almost as 
annoying,  If there's an error in the server software, you get a 
window that says "Error, OK"!   and a dump for detail as you scream, 
"it's not OK!"  and the system reboots.

Where  is the appeal?  

Microsoft is proving that adage:  if you want to survive as a 
software house in the Microsoft world, you either find a niche that 
they don't care about or you find software that they'll buy.
