Read which cards?  UN*X in it's assorted forms has lasted as _the_
server/high-end OS through major advertising pushes by Digital,
IBM, Novell, Honneywell, Data General, and dozens more...  It'll be
there.  Besides, advertising aside, MS is _not_ especially pushing
WinNT.  The requirement that products seeking Windows-Compatible
Branding must run under Win95 at least, NT optional, means that even
if NT does provide more, its added features won't see the light...
