hmmm. complete quote went something like this:
Do you miss the priority function that was available last in ~ version
417? A program called "wstart" available from
http://www.winfiles.com can give it back. It's a program launcher
app that lets you use command line switches to set the priority of
Win95/98 programs just like you can with the task manager in NT.
functionality of program being similar to NT "task mangler"

ps, top, and nice/renice do not work in my copy of win 98. I have yet to test
those linux/fbsd commands in win 95 but I doubt they are there either.
I think this mostly applied to win95/98 users, hence the subject. ;)
