Yes, Eric makes a good point. Though we haven't run into any
compatibiltiy problems with our development apps, there have been a
couple utilities and whatnot that worked on 95 but not NT. The only
specific one that comes to mind right now is a screensaver collection
that my coworker has on his 95 machine. It would not install on NT 4.0.
