Why? When did you first become aware of having a masochistic tendency
to crave being abused by sadistic computer software? If only someone

to UNIX, VMS, AOS/VS, MVS, MPE-IV, Accent, POS, and even CP/M. M$-DOS
may have it's limited uses when it's windowing interface isn't

able to induce usefulOSophobia in some people predisposed to various
disorders preventing them from differentiating useful operating
systems from computer viruses pretending to be useful operating
