Things I'd Like to See in a Network Operating System
by Douglas Chick

  1. Id like an network operating system that anticipates enough space on the first partition to accommodate the 500 service packs that will be required two months after its initial release. 
  2. Id like to see a network operating system that when someone deletes a file or folder from across the network, I can just go into the recycle bin without havent to load last nights backup tape. 
  3. Id like an network operating system that does a nightly diagnosis of itself and sends me a report with possible concerns to look out for. 
  4. Id like a network operating system that is written well enough to at least keep out the beginners and bad hackers. 
  5. Id like a network operating system that employs support staff the can speak the same language as I do. 
  6. Id like a network operating system that works after 5 PM also. 
  7. Id like a network operating system that isnt under federal investigation.
  8. Id like a network operating system that isnt after world dominance or a cult.
  9. Id like a network operating system that interacts with other operating systems from the same company.
  10. Id like the makers of a network operating system that notifies me when theres a problem instead of me having to notify them.
  11. And finally, Id like the makers of a network operating system that appreciates my business instead of plotting for it.

  1. Id like a network operating system that does not show me folders that I do not have access to.  
  2. Id like a network operating system that does not require a client to logoff/logon when I change a permission on the server in order for the client to utilise the new permission.   
  3. Id like a network operating system that shows me ALL networked printers in one place so that I do not have to remember which server each printer is setup on in order to make a change.   
  4. Id like a network operating system that hand holds dumb users through password changes and delivers non lethal electric shocks when they still get it wrong.   Id like a network operating system that does not require a reboot when you change the colour of your desktop background. OK, I'm exaggerating, but you know where I'm coming from.
