    Visio 2000 - Works and is fairly stable

    Visual C++ 6.0 - Works and sometimes stable (Not stable during exams and other importants things apparently)

    Windows 98se - Doesn't work - Unstable, ineffective in out of box edition and needs several tools like an office suit to even come close to being useful.

    Office 97 - Doesn't work, unstable, very unstable, quicksave doesn't work... errors countless

    Internet Explorer 6 - Doesn't work, Majorly unstable - fails to update the LJR frontpage correctly, has java problems, desperately needs fixing.


    Basicly, none of these products would make the debian testing stability cut !! All of them has serious RC bugs

    home win2k: OK, better than 98 by a long way, only trouble I had was with the VIA chipset, before SP2

    work win2k: Pain in the ass, can't SP2 them because they fail to find the domain, bucket loads of trouble with NT4 profiles. why do you need net conectivity in explorer?, that is what IE is for surely? I wish I had never changed, lets hope 2k server helps.

    work office2k: sucks, sucks donkeys.

    NT server: too many memory leaks, keels over regularly, generaly sucky

    Encarta: Don't get me started


    So that'll be a big fat no then.


    Oh, I lie, optical mouse, good.

    short answer : none

    long answer: I have tried everything from dos 6.22 to win 3.0 , 3.11 , 95, 98, SE, ME, NT, 2K .. but I have noticed that it wont make a difference because those systems just crash randomly - and this is not the usual linux is better than winblows thing - I mean when i first tried linux i wasnt able to install it but after a that it just worked .. i never was forced to reinstall it cause it got borked after a month ..

    just my 2c. //

    I've had good luck and bad luck with each of their operating systems. Windows 2000 ran solid on my machine (except for IE) but it sucks on my mom's. The rest have been good and bad on each machine I've installed them on. But I can't think of any operating system that I haven't had at least one screwup with. (FreeBSD has been the best so far though.) As far as their other products go, I haven't had bad luck with them but I haven't used them more than I have to either.

    Mice suck. Use a Logitech optical trackball like I have. Talk about nice.

    Visual C++ - Good
    IE 5.5 - Good
    Windows Media player 7.01.00.3055 - Good
    Office 2000 - Good

    Win98SE on P II 300 with 256 MB of RAM - Sucks
    Office 2K - Never get to use much due to OS crash
    IE6 - So far so good.

    WinNT 4.0 on P 200 with 64 MB of RAM - Good ( except sometime BSOD )
    IE 5.5 - Good
    Win2K - Good
    Windows Media player - Good
