I don't find Windows XP even "fairly" stable, while I do find FC4 so
stable I can call it reliable.  I'm reminded of a comment made while
studying electronics, about poor design:  "The output will remain
constant, when adjusted to do so."

I find an awful lot of tinkering is *required* with XP, but FC4 pretty
much "just works", and keeps on doing so.  And XP *still* hasn't gotten
out of that "reboot required after minor configuration change"
stupidity.
