WHich is bogus. While I got my start with computers as a kid, I stopped
using them for many years until I left the USAF. At that point was when
Windows 2.0 was out, and 3.0 was coming out. Installing Windows 3.1 on a
virgin machine was very easy, and every windows install since then has
been easier.
