"Andrews hasn’t upgraded his PC from Windows 98 or Office 2000. “I’d just as soon have a stable operating system—my time is more important.”
I can't tell you how many times I got the blue screen of death on my old 98 system. And there were times where the whole computer would just freeze, no blue screen and I had to shut the damn thing off to get it to work again, then of course it would
cycle into safe mode.
This has happened maybe once on my XP box. And it's the same HW that I had with 98. XP is much better and more stable.
