Yes. I've installed XP for several people, and it's been very stable. It's
nothing like 95/98. I put it on Andrea's machine for her games, and I only
have to reboot for upgrades. (MS hasn't fixed that yet. :-)) Even games
that need to run in Win95/Win98 compatibility mode never crash the machine.

Personally, I prefer the reply to come *before* quotes if the quoted text is
long, and *after* the quote if it's in response some specific part of the
posting. I hate scrolling through a bunch of stuff I've seen before to find
what the person said.
