WTF? I just told you I AM RUNNING IT WITH 1 GIGA!
Granted with the patch they made, but it works fine. So shut up with your ignorance.
Ok, since you apparantly have no memory whatsoever, I'll be kind and quote the entire bloody thing.
Throw in the fact that Win98/98SE cannot properly manage >512M of memory
Sure it can, i'm running it with 1 giga.
No it cannot.
Hell, Win98 manages memory better than you do. Yes, that's an insult.
Win98 does NOT
manage memory efficiently or properly over 512M. It does poorly with 256M-512M. Just because it manages to work doesn't mean that it does a good job at it.
To go ahead and reply to your other crap in this thread:
Its not the money its that Microsoft is amoral to implement their activation scheme
How is it amoral? If you want to use it, you should buy it. I'm not a fan of the activation scheme, but I'll admit that I haven't had a single problem with it, that it's served its purpose far better than CD keys ever did, and it's relatively unobtrusive. No, it doesn't report your hardware back to MS. No, it doesn't spy on you. Yes, I've done a ton of research on how it works.
But then again, I suspect you're using "amoral" in the same way you use "ignorance". That is to say, incorrectly.
Oh, and I do think that MS is immoral
in many of the things it does. Not the registration requirement, but in its business practices to competitors. But that's a whole different story.
Because billions of people use them.
Uh... no. Even given your obvious misuse of "billions" there is not a large market segment that has a PC capable of running recent games and
is not using Win 2k/XP. It's a small percentage of a small percentage, and that's simply not worth it to a developer to test and support those OS's.
Don't like XP? Fine. Get Win2k. It's still vastly better than Win9x in dozens of ways (memory, disk, networking, and the list goes on).
Oh... and I'm not a MS lacky either. This is being posted from a laptop running Fedora Core 2. The HD in it has never had a MS OS installed on it even once.
