    Windowcraft, mfg. in Knoxville, TN. Okay...enough shameless promoting of my
    company's product line.

    The "best" Microsoft Windows operating system is the one that does what you
    need with the hardware you have. So, toss out your useless question, and ask
    a smart one. Like "I need to... (insert your needs here) and My computer
    hardware is... (insert your computer information here). What version of
    Windows would be the best option for me?"

    It may already be too late, but if that's your real email address you
    should munge it when posting to the newsgroups:

    Yeah? Can you remember attempting your first CD-ROM install in Windows 3.1?
    Geez...what a PITA! Heck...my first W95 OS came on floppies...17 or so,
    IIRC, because it included Internet Explorer.

    I remember when I started in IT, I ran a honeywell 1015 mainframe with a
    whopping 96K of wire-wound core memory
    that was the size of 10 washing machines. Oh yes and punched cards too!

    Wow! As a teen, I used to manually copy Dad's computer programs - little
    punch card holder and stylus...new card on the bottom, original on
    top...punch away <g>!

    Gee! When I was a preadolescent, I dropped my Dad's computer and some
    of the beads came loose. :)
