Re: re: Windows NT was also ruined by marketing

NT4 workstation was actually NT4 server. In workstation a quick registry hack turned workstation into server.

But in those days a workstation was way more powerful than a desktop. In that respect he is right. Windows 95 was the desktop client. And it was with 95 that I ditched windows. The hell of installing it with 21 or 22 floppies will stay with me for life!

A pint because the memory has made me decide time for the pub...

Edit: Bollocks I have just noticed someone elsie has beaten me to mentioning the hack. Now I need to double the amount of pints I'll be drinking, Damn...
