Yeah, the problem is there is such a lack of decent (not that windows is) OS's around. We have what;

+ Windows 3.1, 95,98,2k, XP etc and upgrades.
+ OS /2 (dont think its being made any more)
+ Apple macs OS (lol..dont even know the name of it)
+ and prob a couple more.

Now, out of all of those i would have to go with Windows 2k as being the most full of tools. The most stable would be OS / 2 (never had it crash on me, in 2 years of use).

Welp, we cant win em all. You eather get easy to use, crashing software by windows; or you get OS / 2 or another OS by another company which still has the GUI of Win 3.1 Wink

Another thing that annoys me is the lack of testing by M$. We do one bit of software, and we have 3 people testing it 3 days a week all year round. Now, our software only runs a digital audio recorder, and IMO is written quite well, and is reasonably well programmed. However, M$ seem to just rely on the general users and external companies to find their bugs. This is IMO a very ineffective way of catching bugs and fixing before release. Well, just my opinion Tongue
