The people in the NT marketplace aren't going to go near unix, even
if it is better, faster and even free. They have their heads in the
sand and will just accept the bull fed to them by the sales droids from
MS and Netscape.

This could just be the end of Netscape's dominance. A recent browserwatch
poll put MSIE at 15%. That's 10% better than when I last looked a couple
of months back,

It's clear that Bill's on a mission. The shame is that Netscape have
trodden on so many toes as they laughed all the way to the bank that they're 
not going to get much sympathy from the net community when the evil
empire catches them.
