Nice way to get around the violent language filter :-)

Hmm, Solaris 7 feels a lot faster than 2.5.1 and 2.6 do, at least
on the machines I work on. And booting is about the same speed, if
not faster than NT on faster HW. It get's slower if you install
lots of sw which needs daemons started at boot time, though,
but this is equally true for NT, of course.
