Based solely on Tim's post, I'm sold on Win98. I can't wait to get me
some of that!! U.S. DOJ, go away, I want my Windows Ninety Eight!!!

By the way, you didn't mention the feature that Win95 double clicks
are Win98 single clicks, and Win95 single clicks are Win98 no clicks.
The way I see it, I'm saving myself 67% of my current clicks... which
should make me one and a half times more productive... in theory...


Obviously, where art has it over life is in the matter of editing.
Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops
too quick, or else it goes on too long. Worse, its pacing is erratic.
Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length, while
others stretch into volumes. Life, for all its raw talent, has little
sense of structure. It creates amazing textures, but it can't be counted
on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed, in many cases no
ending is provided at all.
