Sorry about my previous response. I've calmed down and walked around the block. I'm now more prepared for a more civilized response. If Microsoft limited the software that was compatible with Win95 and limited what hardware could be used with Win95, I doubt if there would be any troubles. However, Win95 has been designed (good or bad) so that anyone can make hardware to use with it and anyone can write software for it (literally, considering the ease of Visual Basic and Delphi). With this open architecture (I don't know why I hate that word), conflicts and operating problems are bound to happen in a multi-tasking environment. Personally, I enjoy having a choice in what software and hardware I can use. I've used AutoCAD for 6-1/2 years now. Not because I think it's the best cad software. But AutoCAD represents approximately 70% of the market share. I can easily find people who know AutoCAD. Most of my clients use AutoCAD. Third party software is readily available. I'm not interested in Microstation or Archicad or any other cad program for that reason. EVERYONE knows and uses it. I like to have a choice between Enercalc, RISA, STAAD3, ETABS, etc. If I had a Mac, I would have these choices and, granted, I wouldn't have the problems with the crashes. I submitted my post for the benefit of those using Win95 to possibly help them to avoid the experience I have gone through. If this information does not apply to you, let it go. Except from a defensive standpoint, you will never see an opinion from me about Macs.
