That's a *nix name.  I have no clue what winderz might call it as I've only 
ever had one winderz machine here.  My laptop had a copy of XP on it when I 
bought it years ago, shrunk it to 10Gb and let it live for about 6 months, 
but its had several fedora's, 2 different MDV installs, and now PCLos on it 
after discovering the windows bcm4318 driver was a bigger POS than the 
current linux driver.  Everything else here is either 25 years old & 
running nitros9, or some flavor of *buntu LTS.  IOW, all my windows are 
glass.  ;-)
