"Okay, I surrender. Your response to my piece last week on Linux has left me delighted, amazed and dumbfounded. At last count I had received more than 70 emails - some of them very, very detailed - on the topic.

You choose it, first, because it is rock-solid. It seems that, metaphorically speaking, neither wind, nor rain, nor sleet, nor hail can stop it. Your letters show that it is being used in businesses where it is needed to play a mission-critical role. If I am to believe your emails, its reliability is far superior to Windows NT."
