Well, MS has been trying to get people to migrate from their hacked together 3.1-95-98-me line to the nt-2000-xp line, which is much more stable, for years. the problem is many boards, devices, and device drivers run on the 16/32 but side, plus MS has always priced the NT side higher. How many of you are getting crashes on NT? NT workstation? And the reason IBM put that xSeries inside the AS/400 was to be able to move files back and forth across the bus instead of across Ethernet (which was 10megabit/second when they started.)
