    I only remember as far back as Windows 3.1. But really, that guy sounded like a car salesman.

    Which one, the first or the last? :p

    While Windows may not be older than I am, the first one I used was 3.0, on DOS 4.01. Man, that was so rubbish...

    $100 eh? Well, I hope that's less expensive than Windows 95 is now.

    BTW, you'll get a free pat on the back if you can tell me the main difference between Win95a and Win95b. :rolling:

    It's FAT32. As well as several smaller differences: 95B comes with Explorer 4 (rather than 3), which is probably THE worst thing M$ ever graced us with. 95B also seems to be *slightly* better at memory management, and therefore a tad less unstable.

    Aside from these minor issues, same old, same old. :D

    That really reminds me of Stan, the salesman (The One and Only Salesman.) from Monkey Island.

    LucasArts should have hired Steve for the voice acting in Curse of MI and Escape from MI. He even has the hand-gesting part :lol:
