Sadly this does not include any of the nice old games that I used
to enjoy all those years ago. They worked just fine on Win 98,
but not 2k or XP. :-(

And those games are the only reason anyone here want to use Windows!

2 more reasons:
1. Trying hardware that only runs on real Windows + not VMware (USB streaming modems with proprietary M$ code)
2. Satisfying your ISP who only install on a M$ OS.
