Based on what empherical data?  
1.  On the No Fear issue.  NT Admins go forth and install NT servers.  Fear, HAH!
2.  I, and most of my co-workers smile a lot.  And often on a friendly manner.  
3.  Nah, that's a myth.  NT Administrators don't cringe at Blue, we know how to properly install software so we see it about as often as Unix admins see a core dump.  It's END USERS or those who THINK they are admins playing with their systems and failing to view the README files that cringe at BLUE.
