Hmmm...a link to the Unix-haters Guide...

I read the book...

I know some of the people quoted personally...

Many have the attitude:
"I don't understand it!!! It must be stupid!!"

Some of the criticisms are valid...15 years ago.

If I have a SunOS machine without anything else, I think it would
be pretty poor too...maybe even on a par with NT.

What I find hard to believe is NT and win95 can't easily (natively?) run NFS or
xwindows...these are ten year old concepts...
