    systems...

    Win 9x - 255 characters max
    Win NT - 256 characters max

  2. and when you strip DOS 7.95 of the win32s extension of the kernel.dll of the
    GUI application known as "windows" which runs on top of dos in virtual real
    mode (WTFH?!), you wind up with 8 charac~1.ers

    get a mac.
