I don't know why you're so pissed off at Windows 95.

I use Win95 at home. It works perfectly. I think the last time it crashed was
sometime last week. My computer at work has crashed twice this week and it's
running NT 4.0 (and I don't stress it nearly as much, either).

I know a number of people who have problems with Win95. Almost every problem is
human error or hardware error. Maybe you should get somebody who's good with
computers to take a look at your setup.

I don't think you need a huge hash table to write a chess program. In fact,
simply having a hash table is the important part. A few megabytes is nearly as
good as a few gigabytes.
