Tungsten T. Windows 98 is not too bad actually. It is rather "safe
in the wild"m even without patching. Too bad I am giving away my old Windows
98 laptop this Wednesday. It has served me since I was a high school
student. I now have 3 powerful Linux boxes to replace that platform which
weakens by the day.
It is rather sad to see how Microsoft unintentionally committed suicide ever
since Windows 95/98, which had all the necessary features (at the time!) and
did not suffer from viruses. Yesterday it was said in the Wall Street
Journal that Windows Vista needed to be re-built from scratch. It became a
code jungle and the engineers could no longer maintain the complex code and
have it run.
After all of that information leakage it turns out that Microsoft develop
code much like Linux. A bunch of cowboys produce code spaghetti that is
difficult to make cohesive. That being the case, I would rather go for a
free platform, forget about Trojans and malware and also get good
I was taken off-topic, but then again, I have this tendancy.
