See the July 20 issue of Information Week for an article on 'The Hidden
Costs of NT'.

quote: "NT lacks the robustness, reliability, and scalability found in
more-mature Unix, AS400, and host systems, [some IT veterans] say.
Customers who sign up for NT Server need to be aware of ongoing maintenance
costs and support requirements - issues that can greatly increase the cost
of running NT."
