Windows Firewall is a Brand Firewall? And a Major Brand - One of the biggest! Therefore its a Major Brand Firewall.

Any other Firewall is resource hogging. Especially on an AMD

Has Windows ever made anything except Millenium Edition that's flawed?

98 was flawed, ME is basically 98 just so you know. Microsoft puts out a lot of flawed software, just like the firewall in SP1, the sp2 firewall is supposed to have some upgrades, but i am not a fan of sp2 and choose not to run it.

Haha... I don't think I'll ever see how somebody can't be a fan of a free upgrade?

Many people even now swear by Windows 98 over Linux and XP! Its scary, but true. Nobody targets it anymore You only have to fear an attack that misses and hits you

i dont know anyone that swears by 98, its a horrible OS. As long as you know how to protect your system XP and linux are fine. I would rather have a MAC over 98.

The Alpha of Longhorn is not really stable Its not really worth playing with much. But it looks great; and the Betas shouldn't be long.
