I don't think anyone hates nslookup (well maybe a few do <grin>) I suppose
the immense dislike stems from the fact that it's the default utility under
Windows. Folks who use dig as their default realize that when used
properly, dig provides much more functionality than nslookup. For example,
try using TSIG with nslookup or getting a NSID response. These are only a
couple of examples. There's other reasons to change. The output from dig is
much more comprehensive. And, yes, if you install the bind tools from ISC
under Windows, dig works quite well.

Just my $.02
