        Sorry but althought this is logical, it is anyting but true. Remember
the lauch of Window 95. People waiting in lines at midnignt to by an OS
for wich there was no application yet!

        Strangly, we never see NT adds. What I see is article in business
magazine on NT. Thos are the one selling the thing. The other day, we
received a copy of an article that a VP read. He highlited some key
point the reporter stated. It was unbelivable: "NT never ever crashes"
"You can not crash an NT server" "NT is the first Open system" ... All
of this in a respected "business" magazine. By the way, those are the
one that manager reads, not the computer magazines.
