And on the other hand, underneath the invective, CobraBoy is usually aiming
at the truth. Even if he can't aim the Reply All button to the list itself
I have to dramatically lower my expectations when I use my Win95 box. True,
I agree NT is more stable, but it's not on my Compaq Armada 4120 laptop.
* I expect it to crash 3 times a day
* I expect to have to reconfigure file open dialogs to my 'usual' directory
and filetype settings every launch
* I can't cut-and-paste HTML and RTF reliably between most applications
* Get used to random network-related alertboxes
In general, it's minor annoyances that combine to wear down my patience for
Windows UI. I won't even address the stability of the OS, since that's too
That's why I mourn the NeXTstep user environment (and Taligent's stillborn
effort) even though the APIs might end up winning. Application development
efficiency is only part of the picture...
