At least you have far better control of how NIS,NIS+, files and in the
case of hosts DNS interact. SunOS 4.X really sucked in this regard.
Heck, you couldn't even use DNS without a NIS server. (Ok, so there
were libc hacks that mostly worked around the problem, I don't view that
as a clean solution.)
