For a good reliable system, I tend to agree with you, altho Win 7 works well--for Windows. If the world were perfect, Windows 98 would have worked without BSOD all the time, and it would have been the best. (Of course it was only 16-bit.) But Win 98 still allowed the user some control over where things were stored and in what user-named directories, and you could use the 3rd party program whereis to find them, *but _not_ open them* so you could do something with the file itself--copy it, move it, email it which you can't do in the later Windowses. At least not without a lot of grief. Now i mostly use PCLinuxOS, except for just a few instances where programs only run on Windows--programmers for GPS, and for new ham radios, and WordPerfect and AutoCAD. (WP still puts LO to shame, imho.
