# Windows 10 Fear and Loathing

I was under the impression that OS/2 was MS's intended successor to MS DOS, but their interim offering became so widely used that they dropped OS/2 in it's favour. I had no idea IBM was involved, but it may explain why some banks were using OS/2 in offices and on ATM's at least until XP became current.

I've seen blue screens on ATM, in-flight movies and know how to get rid of the WinX update nag for good. ( but I did it the hard way by deleting files in windows folder, keys in registry and Scheduled Tasks, where they come back) also beware of System Restore use. )

All OS's can crash apps or OS's with insufficient memory including OS2, Android, Linux, and Windows.

Learning how to make each lean has been a hobby, that I can improve on any system to make it faster than new.

However, Blue screens are only incomplete driver IO's of which there are hundreds, for software ports and hardware.

Win 8 started to use more drivers which could be exited gracefully, but these also add latency.
