Started on PDP11 in 1973, stopped using computers in 1990, dropped out, worked for National Trust until 1999, Bought home computer again in 1999 Windows installed, crashed every 20 minutes, thought " my old PDP never behaved like this" after 3 weeks installed Suse 6.0, never used windows since.
So not qualifield to say as have only ever used windows for three weeks
