    like people slagging of vista i never got the slagging me got for me, i found it as or more stable than 98se and had usb pen drive support. i cant remember having any bsd issues with it that werent related to that horrid bit of hardware the soundblaster live. Vista i also found more stable than xp (in 64 bit 32 wasnt as good but i did a quick install as i thought 64bit had gone wappy turned out ms had screwed up tv guide in media centre and i couldnt find an sp1 x64 disk)

    i often use a server (and 9 times out of 10 my schools have just one) for web surfing granted its not ideal (and i turn off enhanced security/iescc as its way to annoying) but as i dont have a desk/pc its sometimes that or nowt

    I find it's more worrying people are browsing the internet with their servers?!
    My servers are my desktop machines in my schools as well -I wonder if having 10 FF tabs open and editing a video might have some influence on Year 2 being unable to print 30 full colour 2 Paint a Pictures ......

    Apparently mentioning ME while working for Microsoft is pretty much taboo. Written out of history.

    I'm sure MS considered calling it Windows 98TE at one point. It's a shame they didn't has the name more acurately describes the OS - Windows 98 Turd Edition (Joke works better if you pronounce it with an Irish accent )

    That was just the drill-down on Windows platforms. It actually looks like this:

    Windows - 700,347
    Mac - 39,276
    Linux - 39, 034
    iPhone - 3037
    Sun - 841
    Android - 757
    iPad - 165 (own up, who is it?)
