I think it is very important to know at least the basics of Windows 95,
even if it isn't your 'choice' OS. I guarantee you that you'll need to
use at least one WIN95 application in your job--either documenting it or
using an application under WIN95 for an employer. These days, you've
got to have at least a nodding acquaintance with different software and
environments. I'm not a fan of OS|2, but that isn't the point--I need
to know it so I can work with it.

I don't think this needs to degenerate into an online flame fest,
either, as long as we all recognize that knowing an OS or environment is
different from *liking* it.
