My mistake, I thought you'd implied there was no 3.11(the Upgrade that was really a patch), but yes even so I was quite happy with WFW, certainly better than 3.0 & 3.10, and as far a stability goes it beat the crap out of 95 & 98 Early XP was borderline until SP2 came along. Vista, now that SP1's in is not too bad. I think the real problem with the OS now is that we're asking it to do too much which is why Windows is so bloated with stuff next to nobody needs or uses every day, I know that ms dos & win 3.11 wasn't exactly feature rich but it loaded fast and let you do things straight away, now we've got to wait for the bloat to load before you can log-in let alone fire up even a browser. I say to MS give me the Lean Mean OS basics then let the sofware vendors build the rest and stop charging me for the crap I don't need, if you want to include it in the install then fine but just don't load it unless I ask for it.
