I am doing a report for school and I have to do an overview of some Windows Operating Systems. You know, it is very hard to find bugs that these OS's had (it's a conspiracy theory) and I would like to have some information. 1. Any bugs with any of the following systems: -Windows 3.11 -Windows 95 -Windows 98 -Windows 98 SE -Windows Me (this shouldn't be too hard) -Windows 2000 2. Also, what audiences were those operating systems targeted too? Anyone who can help will get rated! Much thanks!

The 9x systems had the random blue screen bug/feature.
Then they had the illegal operation bug/feature.
It was fun when explorer did an illegal operation.
2000 had the RPC service buffer overflow bug. Many viruses were written based on that bug.
That's the 60 second shutdown thing.
I could go on and on, but I suggest you search google a little, there must be some sort of list somewhere.

Oh and audiences were mostly home users.
Corporate users used more NT, but in the end everything was used by everybody.
