I used to be a regular reader of his blog, but fell off about five years ago and never hopped back on. I take a peek from time to time, and am always delighted that Kottke is still there. Happy 20th!


win 98 comes to mind urgh


So much better than Windows '95.
About one re-install per year and you were golden.
Don’t even get me started on Windows ME…


I don’t want to start a holy war here, but what is the deal with you Mac fanatics? I’ve been sitting here at my freelance gig in front of a Mac (a 8600/300 w/64 Megs of RAM) for about 20 minutes now while it attempts to copy a 17 Meg file from one folder on the hard drive to another folder. 20 minutes. At home, on my Pentium Pro 200 running NT 4, which by all standards should be a lot slower than this Mac, the same operation would take about 2 minutes. If that.
