You won't get an argument from me that win 98/95 is buggie. Nope, it crashes
on me all the time. However for all practical purposes it is all there is.
It doesn't surprise me that someone wouldn't know that you could run other
o/s's on a intel machine. I've never seen one running before myself, I've just
heard about it from guys like you. I'm sure even the "computer literate" guys
in the office have never heard of beos. They probably know about unix but may
not know that versions of it will run on a pc.
OTOH, the large pc users here in Houston has people who refuse to run anything
made by microsoft. I think people who read theire posts on the local BBS
cannot relate at all. We think they are going a long way around to avoid MS.
It seems to me this is biting your nose to spite your face.
