Wrong. It *does* overwrite the MBR, but then so does every other OS
when you install it. (It doesn't make it terribly easy to boot other
OSes from its bootloader, that's true.)

Wrong. The global comma shortage ended last year, btw, you can use them
again without being penalized.

OK, this *has* to be a troll. Nothing human could consider Win98 SE
'fine'. (My cat liked it because when it messed up its display driver
and filled the screen with out-of-phase flickering gibberish, she could
chase the gibberish. But then that cat was always rather strange.)
