oh, you haven't read http://www.microsoft.com/ie/unix/devs.htm yet?

a quick quote from the page:

And the fact is that both Chapman and Dawson [IE4/solaris developers] have
grown quite comfortable shuttling back and forth between the worlds of
Windows and UNIX. "It's amazing to me how far UNIX has to go today to
catch up to NT," says Dawson. "Take, just for one example, threading
support. UNIX still has benefits, but NT is just a lot more
full-featured."

it's good for a laugh, at least :)
