Update: More on new Longhorn features here.

The ACL concepts & extensive usage of them is more advanced than anything in the Unix world.

That's not true. Take a look these:

That's just linux. You'll find ACL's in Solaris and BSD too.

There really isn't that much that's wrong with the Windows NT on the system itself

Except for the fact that a program crash can take the entire system down.
