I preemptively apologise to @lolwut for the Microsoft bashing and Linux praising in this article.

Also, I can't believe this turned out to be the 98th update to the website, according to Neocities. I swear to Bast that this wasn't intentional...

Very nice entry! For someone like me who appreciates (and sometimes prefers) older technology, it truly warms my heart to see that there are those who love Windows 95 and 98 enough to still use it as their primary OS. Even though, personally, 95 and 98 aren't my favorites, yet I can still understand the motivation for others to stick to them -- it is the same one that, even today, keeps me using Internet Explorer.

I still love Windows and Microsoft, but even I will admit that both have declined since the '90s and 2000s. I had hoped that Windows 8 was only an isolated blunder (and, in fact, 8.1 was fortunately a slight improvement), but 10, it is clear, turned out to be even worse, and truly is inexcusable for a company as respectable as Microsoft; I cannot ever see myself using it.

As for Linux, well, at least you're not using a Mac. (Probably the only Linux distro I would even look at is ReactOS, and then only because it tries to be Windows-like.) I wish you luck in your Windows 98 undertaking.

Thank you for your kind praise, my friend. There are definitely many people who still like Windows 95 and 98 more than the subsequent versions, as I have witnessed over the years. They truly had a warm, free feeling that no other OS can compare to.

I like Windows 8.1 for its improvements over 8, but with 10 being even more sordid, as you said, I find it impossible to keep enough faith to stay with the OS any longer. I may as well be enabling someone's crack addiction by continuing to support them. I have had ReactOS recommended to me and am considering that one as well for the aesthetics. I would certainly rather go computer-less than move to a Mac, or a phone.
