Not at all. We support NT4 as well. (And 2003. But that one support
junctions in the same way 2000/XP does)

But I agree that "no non-default tablespaces on NT4" is a reasonable
restriction.

My definite guess is that it's implemented using NTFS junctions (since
it's still NTFS being used, right?). Just with a different API on top...

Interix also supports only 2000 + 2003, and not NT4, last time I
checked.
