in thread NT vs UNIX

First, remarks like "I think everybody knows how much adavnced is UNIX over NT" are considered trolling here in The Monastary, especially since more "advanced" is a purely subjective term.

Not to mention that the number one operating system to hit the monastery gates is in fact Windows NT.

    Obviously.

    I was simply commenting on how such a statement could be perceived as trolling amongst fellow monks.

    As a large percentage of monks use a variety of flavors of the Windows operating system, I was simply making a note that such a comment could very well be ill-received here, as many people (not counting those where the OS decision is beyond their control) become attached to their OS of choice, and tend to go to great lengths to defend it against trolls, naive comments or endless amount of jokes.

    Since when does popularity have anything to do with advancedness? Is Java more advanced then Perl because it's used more? Is a Trabant a more advanced car than a Jaguar, just because more of them were sold?

    Quantity doesn't imply quality.
