    Yup, so now if you want to use the new Visual Studio you have to upgrade Windows too? Smart move by Microsoft.

    That's the price of progress I'm afraid. Infact, running Windows 98 (or promoting its use in anyway) is far from a smart move IMO.

    I believe .net needs Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Server) to run. This is on XP and 2000 server editions, but not on 2000 Pro. College (maybe high school, don't know) students can get an educational license that lets you buy MS software at lower prices. If your school has an IT Academy license with MS, you can get the software for free, educational license only.
    Or, you can skip MS and .net.

    No, it will install and can be run without it.

    You're right, I guess you don't need IIS, A network prof told me that. Also runs on W2K pro, apparently. Anyway, here's MS site for minimum requirements: .net requirements

    Well, people who use Windows at work probably don't use the unstable Win9x series anyway. Win98 is obsolete. It's 2 generations old.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    If you look at Win95 compared to NT4 you cant help but feel that 95 was a stopgap that would have been dumped in favour of the NT ranges.......loads of API's arent available.......and the system is real unstable as part of the actual OS code was accessable/corruptable by running processes.....

    Its amazing really that 95/98 went on for so long.......you are better of with Win2K or XP though.....try it and see the differences.....

    Its not just that they are newer products...they are better products with more features.....

    I agree 2000 is better, heard opposing claims on XP, but there's still a lot of individuals and business's using 95 and 98.
