“Which OS Are You?” poll is circulating the blogs these days. Lots of people take it and they turn out to be “OS/2”, and than there are so happy that they aren’t “Windows ME”. Well, I guess I got closer to “Windows ME” than most of them, because I turned out to be “Windows 95”.
The description is as follows:
