Criticism

On launch, Dinwos 99 was a very buggy operating system. In July 2000, Service Pack 1 was released to fix these problems. Service Pack 1.1 was released in December 2000, and included XirectD 7.0 as opposed to 6.0. Service Pack 1.1 also introduced System Restore, although the Dinwos 99 version would often crash the computer.
