A mud developer bashing Unix and lauding win95? Have I missed something?
Btw, religion aside: How can any one process die and crash a
(multi-tasking) kernel? Ie, como se dice 'Blue Screen'??? I mean, as
root I can take down my Linux box, but I've never been able to crash the
kernel, or even openwindows.
OTOH, I hear the new win98 is more crash proof. Course, that was
a columnist in the local paper..but hey!
