Random quote 69: "First of all, as good as Win NT appears to be, I'm not
sure I want a phone company switching to it to run it's network. And
heck, Microsoft has never gotten DOS -- a bloated file loader posing as
an OS -- to work bug free. Now this? Let's not forget that Microsoft's
own mega-Web site was seriously infected by a Win NT bug this summer. If
I find out that Microsoft is selling fly-by-wire software to Airbus
Industries or Boeing, then I'm going back to rail travel." - JOHN
