Donīt You remember how IBM advertised OS/2:
MSDOS, OS/2, WIN-NT, WIN-CE, MAC-OS and LINUX are an operating systems.
You may boot from floppy or harddisk or even ROM (Yes you may still do a
complete boot with LINUX from a 1.44 MB floppy)

WIN 3.x, WFW 3.x, WIN9x are no operating systems, because You canīt boot
from then. Its just a "GUI with system extensions",still. You must first
boot MSDOS, and then WINxxx is loaded. Thatīs it :-)

Of course I know what You meant.

In Germany, even in the news, the speed of a car is not said to be "km
per hour" = "km/h" but "Stundenkilometer" = "h x km" !!! Bad language

All about iphones, H.32x phones, cu-seeme
