FWIW, I have a lot of experience with (in order of use/learning) Mac, Atari
ST and Amiga (now *there's* a couple of dinosaurs for you!), Windows 3.x,
Windows 95, and Unix.

I'll take Windows 95 over any of the others any day. Lots of reasons which I
don't have time to go into now. I just wanted to let [whoever] know that
there are some with no particular platform axe to grind who still choose
Windows *not* because "they have to."
