What about the capabilities of commitinfo, loginfo, taginfo. I would
imagine those must be limited on an NT server, since it won't have all
the same commands available. (I'm just guessing though, as I've never
run it on NT. It's something you should investigate though).

Also, what about the more flexible remote administration (Of course
that's and argument for Unix rather than NT in general, so presumably
your admin has already chosen to ignore that point).

And I would reiterate the point that CVSNT is a *port* of CVS, not
just another platform that the main source can be built for. That
means that there is a delay before new features/bugfixes in the main
code find their way into cvsnt.
