You are not answering my question.  What about a comparison between the 
two?  What are differences?  Advantages and disadvantages of each?  I may 
not like Win95 but I see the advantage to some (simplistic interface, 
broad application base).  I realize that y'all may be FreeBSD fans but I 
can't imagine that all the Linux users are mentally impaired.  There must 
be some advantages to each.
