Freedom from Microsoft != Freedom from Intel.

NT 4.0, meet my sledgehammer. Enjoy your stupid crashing while
you can, because I am wiping you and all of your Microsoft cronies
off my machine in a day or two.

JoeK, being as you decided to take the weekend off (!), I'm taking over
your machine so I can get some work done. I refuse to try to get work
done on my NT crashtestdummybox anymore. It will now run as a dedicated
Quake client. At least that way when NT crashes, I'll have something to
blame my losing other than my lack of playing skillz.

I stand by my point that I don't dislike Microsoft because they are
evil and I don't dislike them because they are immoral. I dislike
them because their products keep losing my time and my work. I'm
ready to stop the insanity. I'll pay whatever it takes, just get
this leeching poisonous software off my machine!

How the heck do these products continually get top ratings in
computer magazines? Does Microsoft pay them to run favorable reviews,
or are the reviewers just plain lacking in good taste?

I guess even if I succeed in exorcising Microsoft from my work life,
I am more than stuck with Intel until I get the heck out of Caltech.
I must have been a mass murderer in a former life to deserve the
life with which I am presently stuck.
