Last night, I was with Jess at Wal-Mart, she was buying a new toothbrush (we go there at least twice a day it seems like). Anyway, she always has to use the self-checkout. It can be annoying to use those things. I guess I just don’t know how to work them. Anyway, I found out why they run like crap and are so slow. They are running on Windows 98. Yes, that’s right, Windows 98… not 2000, not XP… but 98… also, I got a quick glimpse at the desktop, and even longer glimpse at the taskbar. They look like they are running at 800×600. There are actually quite a few things running in the background, such as McAfee Virus Shield and RealVNC. So beware, someone may be watching your screen with VNC.
