Yeah? Yeah? Well, emacs suxor, vi is 1337. Linux is lame and BSD rules. Amiga 
is WAY better than Atari ST - any fool can see that. C64 KILLS Apple ][. 
Republicans are the only true patriots. Abortions are evil. The east coast is 
smarter than the west coast. C is better than pascal.  Intel is overpriced 
error filled crap. AMD all the way! Except, of course, that PPC are better, 
like all RISC chips. Zip disks are way cooler than LS120s. Thick crust pizza 
is the only real pizza. Preferences in files are better than preference 
servers. Break the big end of the egg first! Tea is better than coffee. The 
only way to eat an oreo is to pop the whole thing in your mouth and chomp 
down. And it takes 27 licks to get to the center of the Tootsie Pop.

You haven't been around the internet long enough if you think that this is 
bad. :-) Still, I think that the original question is more than answered. :-)

And, AFAICR, 2000/XP don't allow rebooting the way that 95 and 98 did into 
another OS. :-)
