I went to listen to what they had to say, just for a laugh. They were
peddling UNIX services for windows 3.0, NFS client and server, as well
as a gateway server so you can have one box act as file share gateway
between networks of *nixen / blows, NIS - ADO interoperability (change
your passwd on *NIX, it automatically propagates to ADO, and vise-versa
, ksh/tcsh, gcc and libs, The (admittedly knowledgeable) fellow even
compiled an apache tarball with mod_ssl from a standing start (on XP,
with the toolkit)as I watched.

I think it's pretty interesting that now they are trying to inter
operate with the "typical linux cluster backend" (their words) instead
of calling it a cancer or pretending it doesn't exist.
