ok, i use a varity of oses : linux (ark, dsl), windows ( 98se, 2k, xph), bsd (free, open) and beos
so i need a new disk for my win2k box, the other was keyed up pretty badly, so i called my local computer shop, thinking they would get me a retail copy, well they would not, they said i should be running windows 98se as my cpu is only a p2/450, ok now i think 98se is ok, but not for that box.
"so why cant i run 2k?" i asked, "its not a home os" was the reply
and they would not sell a copy to me!, even tho i was going to pay full price (285$)!
now thats just plain stupid!
