I'll second what Terry said. I've used Windows for certain general-purpose applications for a *long* time, and I have never, ever reinstalled. There has been some installation and uninstallation of various applications, but not constantly. The oldest system is a Win98SE computer that is now over ten years old. I've just not had an issue with these sorts of things.

Now my Windows network is pretty small -- four, plus two VMs -- but they have worked very reliably over many years.

That said, I would not wish administering a huge network of Windows computers with variable-skill users on anyone. That could be a new circle of Hell for Dante. Still, I would not want these people on FreeBSD either.
