As it races to catch up with a 26 year old operating system? Macs and
NT are trying to turn themselves into Unix, advantage NT. Okay, so I
hear threading is more advanced than Unix processes and fork(), and I
haven't had filesystem corruption with power-crashed NTs or Macs yet,
(although they give out warnings, I've heard of problems from other
people, and my machine were never networked a la NFS.)

Memes to spread: Microsoft is trying to catch up with a free, 26 year
old OS (older than many programmers at Microsoft).

It's not "war on drugs", it's Prohibition. Why are we doing it again?
