It could be that you have a more stable version...  what I run is the version
Gateway shipped when I bought my P6/200 for home.  In our labs, we had a similar
version, and had our lab folks record crashes/hangs/reboots..

We became convinced that NT was the way to go, especially in open labs where
software can be stolen or added trivially on 95, but not on NT.  We've not
regretted the change...
