The last OS where I routinely rebooted due to stability and memory was 95, which caused me to move to NT 4.0, skipping 98 and ME.

Better browser? you said you are running IE7, better than what; IE6?
to be honest anything is better then IE6...
SHOCKER: i will defend XP on this one, it required less restarts if any at all.
and if 3.5gb cant handle that many tabs you must have less ram...
my guess

I can't handle that many tabs, I don't need that many tabs, I have absolutely no use for that many tabs, like said, 1 browser instance with 6 tabs is tops for me, nothing to do with the OS or browser. Unless you have 4 or more 22" monitors how useful is it.

I do not recall ever rebooting XP to recovery memory, and while I usually have a browser open (Not IE ) I typically have 5 - 7 other applications running.

exactly the only time i have that many tabs open or browsers is when multiple people are logged in to different websites etc.

i would restart after playing games but it was habit from previous windows...

oh wow we actually agree on something

The way I read C-D forums often results in 100 open tabs. I generally go to each index page for the forums I read, and then I control-click on each thread containing new messages. That opens one tab in Firefox for each thread, and I can zoom through them all at high speed as a batch ones they're all opened.

When I start Firefox these days, I have it initially open tabs to Google, Google news, Yahoo News, Slashdot, My main email page, meebo, and a half-dozen monitoring pages which I support here at work. So I have a dozen tabs open before I do anything at all.

NT was a good OS for the most part. I was in the OS/2 camp, but I always appreciated Microsoft's real attempt at a 32-bit OS.
