I hate to tell you "asshats" this, but Windows 98 is actually a 16 and 32-bit hybrid system. It's basically Windows 95 with IE integrated into explorer.
It crashes alot, because it's an operating system designed to run 32-bit applications, but still runs on a 16-bit subsystem, namely DOS.
Alot of instabilities, however, aren't the cause of 'Doze itself, and are usually IRQ conflicts and/or lame, fagass applications (read: AOL) being installed by the user.
Ted: What a cockup this Windows 98 is.
Bill: You try doing something better with reused code, assclown.

Windows 98 - 32 bit code written for a 16 bit system with an 8 bit connection and a 4 bit processor by a 2 bit company who cannot stand 1 bit of competition

An operating system that is better than even the latest MAC OS
Windows 98 crashes a lot less often and you can do more things on it than a MAC

The word you look up in the dictionary when you're either out of perverted words to laugh at or you press 'random word' a lot (Like I did).

A fairly okay OS that seems to crash a lot more often when used by geeks and Linux zealots, especially those who claim that Windoze is soooooo easy to use. Well if it is easy to run, then you shouldn't have a problem running it in the first place.
Or could it be true that geeks truly are less intelligent than they claim they are after all?
A clean install does not mean just loading the fricking OS onto the computer. Any Windoze-using idiot knows that Windows 98 reboots a bunch of times before the system becomes operational, and requires the CD THROUGHOUT the ENTIRE installation process.

The only way that you could make this OS run for any period of time is by not running it. Or just run the whole thing from its 16-bit (but really 2-bit) command line, DOS.
My dog could write better operating systems than Windows 98 by urinating on a keyboard.
