3/25    It's strange that only every other Windows version is a hit.
        NT 4.0: hit
        2000:   flop
        XP:     hit
        Vista:  flop
        7:      hit
        8:      flop
        \_ It's strange that only every other Star Trek movie is a hit
           ST I    - TMP:  flop
           ST II   - TWOK: hit
           ST III  - TSFS: flop
           ST IV   - TVH:  hit
           ST V    - TFF:  flop
           ST VI   - TUC:  hit
           ST VII  - G:    flop
           ST VIII - FC:   hit
           \_ Yeah but the pattern broke after that. IX and X were flops and
              XI was a huge hit.
              \_ M$ still has a chance to match Star Trek by making sure that
                 Win 9 and 10 are flops.  Also, Win 3.1, Win 95, and Win 98
                 were hits, so the pattern doesn't really hold for Windows

2/17    Does WinME or Win2K Home Ed require less CPU power and memory?  Thanks.
        \_ cpu/memory?  That's the basis of your OS decision?  ME is a flaming
           pile of goose dung.  Use 2k.  There was never a reason for ME to
           ship except maybe MS's bottom line.
           \_ Yeah.  I'm setting up a PC for my wife, and all she does is
              running Excel and checking her Outlook mail in a browser over a

4/19    Anybody have experience installing w98 drivers under w2k?  I read
        some FAQ about both conforming to windows driver model so they should
        be compatible.  I'm wondering if this is indeed true.
        \_ not true.
        \_ BZZZT!  Well written drivers won't even allow you to install them
           on the other OS.

2/22    Come on.  How hard could it be for some X savy Gnome lover out there
        to script up a "minimize all"?  It was the best think about windows
        98 and after 3 years i can't find it for my linux box (i've searched
        a little but not a huge amount so point the way if i just missed it).
        \_ use win98 then, foo.
        \_ Serves you right for using a shitty window manager with a shitty

9/16    Is it possible to use a printer atached to a windos 98 PC from my
        linux box (same network).  How?  How 'bout vice-versa?
        \_ both directions are possible: use "samba" on the linux box.
           \_ and here's the recommended reading:
              (the HOWTO is noticeably lacking information and the man page

8/25    Is it better to have VMWare on Windows NT hosting Linux, or to have
        VMWare on Linux hosting Windows NT?  Performance wise, that is.
        \_ Is it a question you are trying to ask?  Please read carefully
           what you wrote and edit it until it makes sense.
           \_ obvious correction made. don't be a prick. the motd's got enough
              pricks as is.

3/10    windows NT server will share one folder fine but the new folder
        can't be seen if user is on an windows 98 machine (can if user is
        on win NT).  Also, even if logged on as the owner from an NT
        client: "properties" only pops up the "general" tab and not the
        "security" tab.  Oh wait, i'm not getting the security tab on ANY
        of the machines in my domain, though i was 5 minutes ago.

9/15    RFI- I'm trying to write a quick prototype driver for a windows
        based pen-input device.  I have my choice of M$ OSes (95, NT, or
        WDM w/ 98 & 2000), and my primary concern is choosing a development
        path that won't screw me over later on.  Again, this is just a
        prototype driver, so extensibility, compatibility, support for
        plugnplay, power management, NSA encryption standards and the like

8/24    Question. Which ISP is good for 24 hours and is reliable? I am
        willing to spend up to $30/month. Also, which auto password and
        auto Windows 95 dialer is good to download? Thanks.
        \_ ED!  ED!  ED is the STANDARD!  Tax Advisor.
                \_ /bin/cat you fool!
        \_ $30! That's pretty steep for an ISP.  Might as well spend a
