Yes, for sure, bad CF will even have Windoze choking, but that wasn't what I tried to say (I also obviously know that Screen Prefs works in OS39 as my old install is OS39 (and it works fine basically))
What I tried to say is that particular moment I realized the CF had gone bad I really wished I had chosen the much quicker OS3.1 install. (= less wasted time.. I do this like every 5 years, so I don't have a good/quick routine)

OS3.9 has served me well for a couple of years now, so I have no intention of bashing it or implying its a "bad" thing, and the numerous bug fixes and modernizations are welcomed, but tbh these days when my Amigas mostly run the occasional game and demo and not used for everything else I used to do on it in the late 90 I think I prefer the "lightweight" OS3.1 after all.

Or maybe I should go "All in" and try something like AKReal
