   10. Norton Utilities for Win95 works on it (Sorry... it reported false
   errors on mine!)
   
   9. It's faster than "DriveSpace 2" (At least not at first...)
   
   8. I need a Pentium-133 to use it (Just don't use UltraPack)
   
   7. It eats more conventional memory (Actually, it eats NONE under
   Win95, if set up properly)
   
   6. I can compress my whole drive with it (Yeah... then try
   re-installing Win95)
   
   5. It's useless on '386 machines
   
   4. It makes my computer unstable (use System Agent to schedule disk
   scans)
   
   3. A virus can wipe out the system (A nasty virus could wipe out the
   system, compressed or not)
   
   2. MS deliberately crippled Win95's built-in DriveSpace to make us buy
   MS Plus
   
   1. It's the best compression program for Win95 (Actually, it's the
   ONLY one... heh heh... Stac, you lose this round)
