Another bug i found, using my test machine, is that when i cut the power from the main switch when windows is booting, after 20 or 30 retries windows can no longer read my hd.

All these bugs, why can't they give us a working os?

It's not really a debate, but more of an interesting fact. Practically you probably won't have this issue, but I'm surprised that you do.

Surely you know a 32-bit OS can handle more than 4 GB of physical ram. You probably meant to say it's just the way Microsoft licenses memory usage.

But certain flavors of 32-bit Windows allow much more than 4 GB...

And apologies to the TS for this thread diversion.

Because it allows your older programs to run on it, making your life easier and cheaper.
