    Which will mean a ton of security updates

    Microsoft was going to go back to the date system for naming it's new OS, did you know? but Microsoft Mac OS X '99 sounded daft...

    Ok, I now have 'Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1' installed

    Its all very nice, I've noticed the shell intergration isn't what it was though. It opens a new window with the folder you type instead of in the same window. Also, the 'File, Edit, View' toolbar things you get on more or less every window, are now below the tabs and below the address bar. Looks a bit naff, and you can't change it

    Apart from that, IE7 looks pretty good.

    windows 9x DOES erase any booting ability for other OSes, though.

    sure. win9x will erase any and all boot loaders it finds, and put one that only allows itself to boot. xp, 2k, 2k3 will erase any and all boot loaders it finds, and install a replacement which can boot all ms oses on the system.

    basically, it's anti $not_windows protection

    It makes dual booting Windows and Linux a pain when you want to reinstall Windows. However, I have come up with a cunning plan so that I don't have to reinstall Linux as well. Install Windows on one hard drive by itself, whack in another hard drive and install Linux on that. When I need to reinstall Windows, take out the Linux hard drive and reinstall Windows. Then, put the Linux hard drive back in, and hopefully everything should work still. I've not tried it yet, but it should work!

    Just to make this post a little more on topic - what's the betting Vista tried to delete anything that's not Microsoft as well? It would be a pleasant surprise if Vista was friendly to Linux and could be installed after Linux, rather than trying to shoot it on sight.

    Only if your installing to the same drive on seperate partitions though? win9x should never touch another drive? - Exept when your trying to install it to another drive with a 9x boot already on one, in which casse it will install 6mb to the second drive and run from the previous drive.
