Lantimes has an interesting article about the problem with Unix: it has many technical advantages which please the engineers (people who do things), but confuse the suits (people who make poor decisions). While NT probably is easier to set up and involves cheaper sys-admins, it's your base T-model. Interestingly that's what it's being used for: a replacement for NetWare, printer and email servers, but not web servers. In essence, Unixes need to stress simplicity by providing a very simple cross-OS consistent intuitive GUI interface for inexperienced sys-admins and address the suits' level of understanding.How do you think Suits can be persuaded that NT is still wet behind the ears, and will take 20 years to mature to Unix's level of scalability and security?
