I had Linux for 4 years... and I had some rare problems ( for ex.kernel 2.4.x
panic on mount old floppy) but I think that this is very system-user dependant. So
maybe try again with more care... I'am using NetBSD current on XP1700+ and I have
no problems...

Nobody is talking 'crap' about Linux - there is nothing bad in sharing with
"benchamrk results" and Your "agression" have no point :)

And another thing about junk machines - do You thing that 5kg war-hammer is good
for 3cm nails?
