X11, Window Managers Over the past couple of months, and especially over the past couple of weeks, I've been working very hard to write and complete my thesis. I performed all the work on Windows 7, but now that the thesis is finally done, submitted, and accepted, I installed Ubuntu - and immediately I was reminded of why I do not do any serious work on Linux: the train wreck that is

Are you seriously saying that you never had any instability problems with windows NT 3.51?? I don't think that's possible, if you really use it. It was marginally more stable than win 95 sr3, while require 3 times as much memory.

It was the first release of a completely new operating system, of course it was unstable and buggy as heck.

I think that "marginally more stable than win95 sr3" is a slight exageration. I remember using NT 3.51 and Visual C++ (amongst other apps) solidly for about 2 years and it proved very stable for me.

Sure, it had some bugs and it had its moments like any other operating system but IMHO it was a very stable platform to work on and certainly a lot more stable than Windows 95.

I remember wanting the Windows 95 interface but with the stability of NT 3.51 - then came along NT 4.0 ;)
