    NT doesn't run anything for more than a day. It stays up, but the
    applications always stop. This is considered "normal" by M$. Even
    M$'s C++ environment needs to be rebooted between compiles or it
    won't link.

    Running a benchmark for a month will guarantee that even a CP/M
    machine will beat NT in overall performance, even if the database
    is on 96k, hard-sectored, single-sided floppies that have to be
    changed by hand.
