They're not ready to give up just yet. But it seems to me that one
Microsoft product ought to work with another with a minimum of fuss.
They don't even do that. Just my opinion, as an AS/400 programmer.

The AS/400 is the M1A1 tank of systems. Not much to look at, but it'll
plow through anything. NT is an ordianry car; you run INTO a brick wall
(as opposed to going THROUGH it).
