        \_ that page shoul be called UnixMyths.asp (since they compare vs. unix)
           and claim that linux descends from unix and has all of unix problems.
            \_ Don't you know?  RedHat == Linux == UNIX.
               \_ And Redhat started the open source movement! Yes, I believe
                  everything I read!
        \_ Didn't some guys at IBM cobble together a big multiprocessor
           box (~156 processors) and get it to outperform a cray while
           running a copy of redhat Linux as the OS? Lets see someone do
           that with NT.
