It was no meaning to offend or upset anybody. But it is how _I_ feel about
this matter. I never the less appreciate the work Spiro is doing because I
know he helps people.

Two very simple ones:
- The software I develop and use is very time sensitive so IMHO a
multitasking OS is out of the question. W98 enables me to start up in real
DOS-mode if I want too, XP cannot unless I install another OS first.
- My products can run on a 486 or Pentium 1 with just 4 MB of RAM and a 40
MB harddisk. I wonder if you can run XP on it. W98-DOS can. And this means
that the laptop mentioned above, instead of just laying around, can have a
usefull life.
