I prefer not to endure the daily, or even more frequent, reboots 
required by Windows 3.1, W95, and W98.  W2K was the first version of 
windows to eliminate the MSDOS underpinnings of earlier versions.  I 
found the difference in W2K most striking!  Some of the hardware these 
older O/Ss ran on is able to run Free BSD or some flavor of Linux but
most is now serving as boat anchors, door stops, etc.
