NT4 is even worse and before they are allowed to completely
drop support for
NT4 they should at least have the decency to do a rollup of
all the patches
so it's left in some sort of workable condition for those who aren't
upgrading.

But that would be opposed to their busines model that is based on doing
their best to force you to upgrade, as opposed to creating and supporting a
good product.  Personally, W2K was my last MS product.

BTW, I love the way SuSe updates online during install, before the first
boot off the hard drive. Those guys know security.
