You aren't joking...

The last machine that crashed was about two weeks ago at a small local
business.  It was so riddled with virii that it finally just ceased to
be.  No reboot, nothing.  I rebuilt it with the disks and told them that
they needed to use some antivirus and antispyware.

As far as windows goes, XP seems to be the best.  But I just came across
a guy using WIN 3.11.  And there are still a lot of WIN 9x machines out
