This is exactly my point. Suse 9 was released (at a cursory glance via google)
in october last year, making it just over 6 months old. Windows nt 4 was
released, what, 7 or so years ago? As Kenn says, crashes and tomfoolery to do
with PCs is usually due to dirt hardware, and saying a seven year old
operating system doesn't measure up to a 6-month-old one is not argument in
favour of anything, since it proves or disproves nothing.
