After test-driving Windows 95, technology writerJoshua Quittnersays the program probably isn't for everyone. "If you have to spend money to upgrade to a computer that will run Windows 95, you might as well wait. There's nothing in here that's worth spending an extra $1,100 if you have to upgrade to 8 megabytes of RAM and go out and by a sound card." Quittner recommends waiting two years to buy a more advanced computer "because by then, they'll have Windows 97." For Windows users with the proper equipment now, he says, the new rollout is an improvement. "It comes closer to true multitasking, and it uses 32-bit processing, so your programs will run faster. It really does makeWindowsrun more like a Macintosh, but it's still not as easy to use."
