Navigating through their simple browser isnt fun, if you've used nothing else i am sure that you love it, but when i want to for example play games online, its sometimes impossible on a lower end computer as AOL has snatched my resources.
IT is possible to network with AOL, me and my friend tried to share the connection through my router and couldn't get it to work. However other ISP's worked immediately with it.
If you like AOL but don't like the way it eats your resources, why not create a new connection and type your details as follows.
Password: (Your PW)
Number to dial: Check network connections in the control panel to see what number AOL would usually dial and make a note of it.
After doing this, you can remove AOL and still use your new connection, just make sure the modem remains installed. Download firefox and use that to browse the web, to check your e-mail visit AOL.com

Here is a site about some bad rep re: AOL;
Fun things to do with AOL disks:
There is a cult following it seems regarding the AOL CD's - I might have to jump on the bandwagon - well - maybe not...

Therefore I don't need to install ANY of their software, just configure the router and it auto-dials.
I do agree their software is ridiculously resource hogging.
