 ;-) as I see it any MS generated "OS" has strange limitations/obscurities,
the above is an obvious one in W98.
 Remember where it all began; "Quick And Dirty Dos" -> very few changes ->
"MS-DOS 1.0". IMO the sense of it is still there, even in NT. Can't tell
about XP - but I would be surprised if the changes were that many.
 I've been running _well known_ applications on NT that misbehaved every

 Sad but true, the availability of software is too good. An old machine as
it is - sets limits that I do not want to step beyond... "That's why the
lady is a tramp" ;-) .
