I am sure it won't last long with NT, but it could at least satisfy my nostalgia. For me NT 4.0 was the pinnacle OS, I remember when my dad bought NT 4 Server in 1996 and had me install it on my 75mhz Pentium. I wasn't hooked on Windows 95 at the time like all my friends, but then again they were reading Goosebumps while I was reading Novell Netware manuals. I had previously messed around with OS/2 Warp, it was the only to play my old DOS Interplay Star Trek games that required excessive conventional memory, but didn't like the flakiness of it from what I remember, I think my Sound Blaster 16 would loose it's settings off and on.
For whatever reason seeing that blue background with the 16mb of ram I had displayed in all it's glory really struck a chord. I ended up running it as my primary operating system until sometime in 2000 when I upgraded to Windows 2000.
I haven't looked around yet, but as long as I can compile C++ on the Alpha machine I will be happy. I'd love to run some of my benchmarking applications on it for the sake of comparison.
Sorry for the rant, just trying to explain my love of NT.
