Solaris is far and away better at SMP than NT. I haven't seen NT running
on 64-cpu machines, and I certainly haven't seen it scaling very nearly
linearly to ~20 CPUs (diminishing returns start to take effect around 22
cpus). Solaris has had this since at least 2.6 (when I last evaluated
this) with 2.[78] adding greater stability and more features.
