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!

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.
