NT gets facelift with ... Unix

It took me some time to write this feature, since it made me laugh a lot... There is a company called Softway Systems Inc. which has ported "Unix to NT"... According to the company "This Unix branding puts us at the same level as HP (NYSE:HWP), Sun (Nasdaq:SUNW) and IBM (NYSE:IBM)," claimed Softway CEO, Doug Miller. Frankly, I must admit, it took me some time to stop laughing at the comparing of HP-UX or Solaris to NT.. Now the question is - how much time it takes NT to crash with this "unix" system on it? I wonder if seg. fault will cause blue screen of death :) The full story is on ZDNET
