Ingo, This original thread was regarding Linux vs. NetWare 5.x performance
metrics and responses from Linux folks about how to affect and
improve them, not a diatribe on the features of TUX.

I wrote the kernel in NetWare 4.x that later became 5.x. To date, my
NOS kernel has grossed over 8 billion dollars. This is more money
than all the Linux companies have made combined in their entire
history, on your work, Linus's work and everyone else's. I don't have
anything to prove to myself, or anyone else, which is why I do as I
please in life, and no one's comments or snipes dissuade me from moving
forward. I also am not "someone's employee".

If you have some ideas on how to improve file and print or help me
get a linux incarnation that can stomp NetWare, I'd love to hear
your ideas. I think TUX is great, BTW. Otherwise, end-of-line...

:-)

Jeff
