The Founding Fathers meet Windows:
Mr. Jefferson: Gentlemen, the summer grows hot, and it is essential that we complete this Declaration of Independence.
Mr. Franklin: Wait a minute, Thomas. I have to reboot here.
Mr. Jefferson: That's all right, Ben. We'll go on without you. Has everyone had a chance to look at the draft I posted yesterday?
Mr. Sherman: Not yet, Thomas, I've been having Notes replication problems.
Mr. Adams: Here, Roger, I brought a hard copy.
Mr. Sherman: Thanks... saaaaay, nice font.
Mr. Adams: Do you like it? I downloaded it off Colonies Online just last week.
Mr. Jefferson: Gentlemen! There is work to be done. I fear our document will soon leak out.
Mr. Livingston: Too late, Thomas. There's already a bootleg circulating. I saw it posted on alt.georgeIII.sucks last night.
Mr. Franklin: @#$$%^$# General Protection Fault!
Mr. Adams: Ben, you might try upgrading to Windows 75. It solved that problem for me.
Mr. Sherman: Thomas, the part here about the Acts of Pretended Legislation; have you considered using bullets to air out the text?
Mr. Jefferson: I can fix that easily enough. Drat! I've spilled candle wax on my keyboard again.
Mr. Adams: You know, Thomas, that wouldn't happen if you'd buy an active-matrix screen.
Mr. Franklin: Hard-disk failure?!? Aw, criminy!!
Mr. Livingston: Are you sure it's "unalienable rights"? My spell checker recommends "unassailable".
Mr. Jefferson: Can we stick to the substance of the document, please? Shoot. Low battery. Anyone got a spare power cable?
Mr. Sherman: What have you got, a Toshiba? No, mine isn't compatible.
Mr. Franklin: Hello, PCs Philadelphia? What does it mean when the floppy drive buzzes? OK, I'll hold.....
Mr. Livingston: The "In Congress" part here at the top; have you thought about blowing that up really big and maybe centering it in 72 point Helvetica?
Mr. Jefferson: Not a bad idea. Aw, nuts! Word macro virus! I can't save the file.
Mr. Franklin: That's all right, Thomas. We can manage. Here, borrow my quill pen....
"John Henry said to his captain, 'A man ain't nothin' but a man -- but before I let your steam drill beat me down, I'd die with a hammer in my hand.'" (The Ballad of John Henry)

Cause its as stable as a three legged table, one click in the wrong place and boom. We only use it because there's nothing else to use.

Ever heard of those?
I see no problem in Windows. Maybe it's a bit unstable at times, but mostly I only run one program at a time, so that's no problem. Do something about problems instead of just complaining about them!
My words of wisdom(?).

MattII: there are many alternatives. Most people don't use them because most software is for Windows, and because the other OS'es are often hard to install and use.
The Person: when you only play Solitaire, or have a single IE browser open, all OS'es are stable. I often have multiple programming IDE's, IRC windows, e-mail clients, browsers and MP3 players running. Stability is an issue, then.
