Given the question was about wanting to run Windows and Linux on an IBM
MIPS server and do virtualization, I didn't think it would help to discuss
Windows NT, etc. I am aware Windows was supposed to have run on more
platforms in the old days. My point was that you can't run XP, 7, or Vista
on MIPS hardware, not that I was trying to beat anyone out in a trivia
contest about what versions of various things were ever rumored to run on
MIPS ;-)
