December, 1996: A UNIX Bigot's Reaction to Windows NT

Joe VanAndel, who works at the National Center for Atmospheric Research on data acquisition and radar control systems, described his reactions to Windows NT from the perspective of a UNIX bigot with 17 years experience. He described NT as a 32-bit multiprocessor operating system that is becoming popular in the marketplace because it runs on high-end PC software and also provides the ability to run many Windows 95 programs. Joe asked the question why anyone with years of experience would want to use a programming language with the word BASIC in it-- and he proceeded to show some of the power of Visual Basic in terms of integrating productivity applications-- such as spreadsheets-- into new Visual Basic applications. Joe's viewgraphs are available, and he also pointed to several other resources for more information on NT:
