NT4, 2000 and XP are all moderately stable, but none of them is what I
would call "rock solid". I've only had XP for less than a month, but
I've hung the OS several times, and hung Explorer, which is really
interesting. It's certainly possible to do this with NT and 2K also.
I don't consider any of these to be nearly as robust as *any* of the
*nix systems I'm familiar with, including IRIX, Solaris, and DEC Ultrix.
