Bill Gates crashes Windows 98

The chairman of Microsoft, Bill Gates, has unveiled his company's new operating system, Windows 98, at a computer fair in Chicago.

The system, which is due to go on sale in June, will replace Windows 95.

Mr Gates says Windows 98 will make it easier for both private and business users to operate their computers.

That wasn't the case at the unveiling -- the system he was using crashed half way through his demonstration.
