Yeah, I saw that yesterday. Very funny.

To be fair though, everyone dissed XP for a year and a half pointing out how much faster and more stable Windows 98 was.

I dont think I'd try win98 on anything these days, unless it was something older and slower...but then I'd probably try a linux distro or two.

...and Vista is a bigger hog than XP. Vista is slow and takes gobs of memory as its set up to do all the "rights management checking". My next computer will be a mac and at work its all fedora.
