and think of it this way. when he has trouble, you can dial in and fix it
for him. :)
i used OE5 SP1 on my ultra2 at work, and it's slow as hell. IE isn't so bad,
but OE5 was painful. on a dual 300Mhz Creator 3D Seris 3 with 2GB RAM machine.
so don't expect much outta OE, but netscape runs as crappily as it does on
every other OS, so that's a good place to start. plus, when it crashes it
won't take the machine with it since he won't be running Wonders. :)
having trouble putting thoughts together. must sleep.
