Re: re: Windows NT was also ruined by marketing

IIRC the only difference between NT Server and NT Workstation was a registry hack that you had to pay MS for (or not, if you fancied a bit of DIY).

NT should have been a clean start, leaving behind all the old "bypass the OS and go direct to hardware because performance" crap that made earlier OS versions such a problem.

However, as indicated elsewhere, traditional MS culture managed to screw up a promising beginning.
