Re: emperor's new clothes
I see you've never actually used OS/2, which was quite the battleship.
Novell Netware, OTOH, had such bad security holes, I found 3 "gets ya supervisor" during a weekend look through their API docs. Stuff was designed with holes in it.
EDIT: and I'll never forget when Drew Major came to our uni and syscon kept flashing "PLEASE WAIT" while pulling up the user list.
"How many users you have?"
"Oh about 3500 on this server"
"Whups, I put a bubble sort in there, that's why it's so low. Never expected that many"
Our Data Structures & Order Analysis instructor was there. The *look* on his face...
