Makes little difference what box it is one or mor eof the apps are broken
and killing others. Composted (yes cow dung is composted) as they are
would they run better under VMS or on a Sun, likely not just the core
dumps might be more interesting.

Then if you also looked even on a "Real OS, (tm)" youd find they still
buffer overflow, mem leak and leave garbage in memory or load broken
drivers. Just a few of the far to common offencesI've seen.

Maybe, once you debug and recompile the apps.
