I agree with Ritchie. Windows was written to sell to the masses and the
masses do not run servers. So the entire design was client first and
server as an add-on. What does that mean? A client has to be easy to use
for someone with not lot of skill, and if it crashes, so what - reboot,
run scandisk and go on. With this development model all the effort will
go into developing a pretty GUI interface at the cost of stability and
performance. Indeed, it is easier to impress a non-computer savvy
executive with pretty windows than with dry performance parameters. And
if he wants performance figures - hire Mindcraft ...
