Well 95 and 98 are already becoming almost obsolete because things are now moving so quickly - which is actually a bad thing. People are now so pressured to come up with new stuff that it's rarely good quality. Our satellite dish reciever breaks down every month - almost to the day. And I hear the newer ones are even worse. The only one that is any good, is the original TiVo - since then, all these companies are too pressured to come up with these pause live tv things, that they hardly work. As soon as 95 and 98 are out of the picture - the only reason I've kept Windows this long will no longer apply - and I'm switching to Mandrake Linux - and besides - I love that little penguin!
