Okay now to get some blood boiling... It has been asserted by some that Windows 2000 was the Windows update that resolved the big stability gap between PCs and Macs. I put forward this hypothesis: Windows 95/98/Me was not quite as unstable as we all thought. It just appeared that way because while Windows machines had to deal with 1000s of software titles and drivers, Mac OS 8/9 on average only had to deal with about 30 available titles (i.e. Adobe product lines, Quark, Clarisworks and those 3 Macsoft games.) Certainly Windows 2000 demonstrated a huge jump in stability, but would OS 8 or 9 have been just as unstable as 95/98/Me if its use was as widespread?
