    Five differences would be:

    1. Filesystems
    2. Device drivers
    3. Hardware support
    4. System services
    5. User interfaces


    Hope that helps, or at least gives you a starting point.

    I'll assume you mean the NT windows line and not the SUE line.

    NT lacks a super user account.
    NT has a completely different authentication subsystem.
    NT features a seperation an administrators and operators (this is part of the first item but is important in and of itself)
    NT has a completely different audit trail.

    Although Pure listed many differnces, I am not sure they would be considered architectural differences.

    Hope these help you get started, if you need more help feel free to ask...

    catch
