Hi Joel:

NT 4.0 Server is comparatively quite stable since there
have been quite a few service packs ( 7 to be precise ).
The stability is compared to the other OSes that have
been shipped from MSFT stable.

My point was that if the user plans to invest in UI intensive
tools esp. for visualization / modeling etc then it is more
cost effective to have a NT box.

I would always try to recommend a solution from the perspective
of effectiveness in a given scenario rather than some religious

Have a nice day!
