I can't understand why they didn't pick "Lintel" (as opposed to 
"Windows", and coincidentally "Wintel"). "Doors" would be a bit boring, 
and Lintel describes what an OS is supposed to do - provide a support 
structure that is actually of use to a person. Windows are pretty to 
look through, but a door lets you get out into the world :)


Windows 98, n.: 32 bit extensions and graphical shell for a 16 bit hack 
on a 8 bit operating system originally written for a 4 bit 
microprocessor, by a 2 bit company that can't stand 1 bit of 
competition and has not a bit of respect for its customers.
