OK. I'll do it better next time. :-)

+1 for this suggestion. If I just have time, I could add a comment to the
top. With the current system it _will_ get nasty, as the Windows .NET
Server is coming.

One approach could be to call 95/98/ME Consumer Windows like Dave Solomon
and Mark Russinovich do in "Inside Windows 2000, 3rd Ed." The only caveat
here is that I can't come up with a sensible name for NT/2000/XP series. I
suppose I could add a definition for NT and 9x, and that's it.
