Not wishing to start a "Holy War"; however, Win NT is NOT
like a Macintosh OS!!!
MacOS was built with a VERY intuitive, user friendly front
end. It has no command line wich really bothers some people;
however, that feature (or lack of feature) provides an inherent
security level built into the OS that Win NT does not have.
Yes, Win NT has grown dragging the buggy insecure heritage
of DOS and the many flavors of Windows to the desktop.
