  To think, a windows NT magazine found NT beating Novell software, wow,
  must have been a tremendous leap for them. Where is the URL for this
  comparison? I'll help you read through their "results"

  Oh yeah, just because NT runs it's processes in their own memory spaces
  it's crash-proof. Here's an URL for YOU.
  It's an entire website dedicated to crashing windows NT, infilitrating
  security, and whatnot. Novell is a far superior technology for a very
  simple, logical, practical reason. It has been around since the
  beginning of PC networks, and is tried and true. NT performance is
  laughable. But talk about MS marketing techniques and the humor stops.
