Dang! You bring back old memories! I remember Windows 95 , 98 , and ME. I liked 98SE the best of the bunch and ME was a terrible system. Worst of the bunch so far, although I've heard Vista was just as bad. My, how things have changed. I know how slow and what a pain it was sending e-mail back then or ordering something online.
I don't know much about Mac as I've never had an Apple machine before and really don't want one either.
Now, with Windows 10? You can do just about anything pretty darn securely!
I think I had AOL back in those days with my Gateway overpriced piece of junk! LOL
As much as I have to e-mail now? I'm glad for the modernization.
