Let's not forget also that the migration path from 95 to NT is a rocky
one. Due to registry incompatibility between the two OS's, all Win95
apps must be reinstalled after installing NT. When I think of all the
apps I have on my Win95 machine, I shudder at the thought of making the
switch, attractive though the improved performance of NT seems to be.
