well-deserved) WinXP Home, the bastard child of NT and ME. "Users can't handle having to log in a Administrator to install programs." Yeah, right.
How do Wintel users stand it? It must be like being shackled to a horse which needs its head cut off and replaced every couple of years. Constantly sweeping up behind and the personality swings seem a high price to pay for not having to walk everywhere.
