Heh.  I haven't manage to stamp out WinXP in _my_ usage. 

Microsoft's "Services for Unix" doesn't run on on anything but the obsecenely
high-priced top-end versions of their newer releases.  In addition to the 
significantly increased hardware requirements to get the same "user app"
performance, this makes upgrading a 'show stopper'.
