Sorry, but this is simply true. I know Windoze XP and I had to use it
long enough, far too long.

Much better? Slightly better! And, yes, Windoze.

I used Windoze long enough. And I had to reinstall it every 3 months,
and I know a lot of people who also had to do it this often. Since
Windoze XP it was maybe not every 3 months anymore, but still often

I am realistic and professional, because I speak from experience, like
I said before more than 25 years. Windoze is completely bad. Otherwise
I wouldn't get fits of raving madness every time I have to work with
this crap, which is fortunately not too often anymore.

Not really.
