I don't see any actual business applications in your list, John.  Not sure
what PDC is, but DNS, DHCP, WINS, FTP, print and file serving is not a
business application, and none of it requires any serious database
capabilities.  And unless the MSDE is actually serving some sort of data
entry, it's not a business application either.  MAS90, on the other hand, is
a real application, and that's when NT falls over.
