Yes, which ties in by virtue of the fact that NT/W2K is just as reliable
on the proper hardware platforms for it as any commercial Unix is on its
proper hardware platform.

NT/W2K was never designed to run well running server-class services on
workstation-class hardware.  That's not its niche.  To castigate it to
fail to do so just because Linux/FreeBSD does is comparing apples to
oranges, just as comparing Linux on a 32-processor SMP server monster to
W2K Datacenter is an unfair comparison.
