  I heard support for NT was dropped due to not enough demand... after 
all even Redhat dropped support for the Alpha and Sparc ports.

  I agree that NT is a discontinued product, and MS is pushing people 
onto other product names... but the point was can one run windows on 
a mainframe.  The answer appears to be no.

  Bill certainly updates the website... send him the more interesting 
URLs.  He likes bringing these sorts of things up at the demos.
