The same question was asked back in 1998 by John Kirch (when the question
was Linux vs. Windows NT 4 server, see http://www.lege.com/unix-nt/).
Here is an excerpt....
Why Windows NT Server 4.0 continues to exist in the enterprise
would be a topic appropriate for an investigative report in the
field of psychology or marketing, not an article on information
technology. Technically, Windows NT Server 4.0 is no match
for any UNIX operating system, not even the non-commercial
BSDs or Linux. A manager is not expected to have the technical
expertise of a systems administrator with 15 years of industry
experience. There is no shame in not having the facts, only in
being ignorant of such facts, which will in the end cost your
employer, and eventually all consumers, money. The aim of this
article is to give you these facts, and prove that they are facts,
because facts are not debatable.
