My understanding is that WAS correct.

Can't help with the error, but my understanding NOW is that Marty uses OS X...
So, kinda still BSD, but not really.  (Generalizing, no flames please. :-)

You used to have to reboot the Windows 9.x series every couple of days
because it would crash.  Now you have to reboot Windows 200x or XP every
couple of days because of a patch.  How is that better or more stable?
