Don’t Expect a System to Behave Uniformly.
“Q. My Windows Me operating system rarely shuts down properly, and it
freezes and crashes about once a week. I have heard that this problem
is common with Me; should I upgrade to a different system?” By J. D.
It strikes me as sad that the New York Times computer advice column can’t offer hope that a solution is available.
“Upgrading your computer to Windows XP might be one way to solve some of
your computer’s problems if you have the time, money, patience and
hardware to handle the task”
On the other hand, it might not.
