Having used of Caldara openlinux 2.3 I can sy they did a good job
getting closer to W9x in most ways bad.

W9x no matter what version and that includes WinME all suffer from
the same two basic problems in my book. The kernal is not well protected
from buggy apps and the file system is not protected from buggy apps
crashing the kernal. The two things that NT and most of the unix clones
seem to have fairly correct.
