I find your publication repulsive. You are a poor technology (a.k.a. Microsoft Windows NT) showcase. Give me a break, “Unix vendors need Linux to tackle Windows NT,” ( NWC, Dec. 4, 1998, page 14). If you were serious about your namesake, you would talk about reliable solutions. By default, NT would never even be mentioned. Stop the comedy.

I would like to know more about Solaris and Apple’s OS X, big bandwidth and compression issues. While you’re at it, tell us about Linux — and let’s not hear it from a Microsoft prospective.

If you’re not going to get serious, then I would ask that you put “Network World a Microsoft Way” on the front of your journal. Then there would be no confusion and we would not waste our time opening it up.
