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.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
