The biggest problem with computers is, as a tool, they are piles of crap. Back in my days in automotive, we wouldn't have stood for an air ratchet that acts up as often as a PC does.
So when someone says "not necessary for home use", does that imply that the home user doesn't deserve an opportunity to add a little quality to a pile of crap ? Or are they just parroting something that some other parrot parroted in an earlier topic ? (There ARE a lot a parrots around here).
When I started migrating the developers in my company to ECC, complaints of lockups started dropping noticably. You should gladly spend a FEW extra bucks for that, especially if you're running your Grandma's operating system (95/98/ME).
My contention is that many spout off based on the spoutings of others who have spouted off before, as opposed to real-world experience. I did not bad mouth the question asker. On the contrary, asking questions is always admirable.
Providing answers based on heresay is not.
My apologies for not conveying that point effectively.

Personally, I rarely get a lock and have had (mentioned this somewhere else) as many BSODs as I have thumbs, using W98SE in three years. Now I'm very gratified to be conversing with someone with a firm grasp of English, but no amount of big words change my opinion. I trust a man of your metal can understand.
