I don't know whether you object to NT because it's Microsoft or because
it's not Unix. If the reason is the latter, you might check out I've heard good things about
them. Their stuff is a native NT subsystem, like the Microsoft-provided
Posix subsystem (but much, much better).

What's wrong with NT 4.0, or, why does it not qualify as "decent"?

BTW I'd count NT 4.0 as the magical third release, after NT 3.1 and NT
3.51. (Yeah, there was 3.5 but it doesn't count.)
