I would have to say NT is not as bad as I would like it to be. Granted I
have to restart it more then any of my UNIX machines, It is still not that
bad. I use NT to host my web-based email, beacuse I use exchange as the
server. I use FreeBSD as the host for my main pages.
Most companys use NT simple because it is expected of them, or just simpler
to setup. Even better for the big companies, It seems better to go with a
product that has a responsible company behind it. This is not to say that
Micro$oft is a responsible company, just responsible for their product. For
the systems I have setup here and there, I use what ever the customer wants.
Hope this helps.

I'm not trying to start a flame war..I am just curious. If NT is as
horrible of an OS as everyone claims then why do web sites like
Barnes and Noble, Ebay, CDW, and BuyComp (among others) use it?
I'm not trying to praise NT - just wanting some information
explaining why people should choose one OS over another.
