My wife shutdown her 98SE last night around 11:30.  10:30 this morning, 
it still had the win98 shutdown screen.  Locked up again.  If that's 
stability, you can have it.

My wife's machine is there only because I've not found a way to run 
Printshop on a non-M$ OS.  It's a school teacher's major tool.  She will 
be running a dual boot shortly though, so I'll not have any windows 
machines in my house which connect to the internet.
