We've already invested in the NT version of the Cold Fusion server, 
and we're (at least for the moment) not ready to deal with multiple 
server networks.

I'm finding that there are certain (read: most IMO) MS products that 
just don't cut it. The only reason we use it is because they have 
market lock-in. THE MS FTP program for example is a notorious piece 
of junk. As for Front Page, I much prefer to pay someone to beat my 
server with a sledgehammer. It's quicker and more efficient.

So'm I, but business reality prevails.
