Win95.

Started the death of DOS. Sick of all that DOS crap. Sorry to the people who use it now but it was a pain in the ass to have to make boot disks to free up a few Kb of RAM to run a game under Win3.1.

Also got rid of config.sys /autoexec.bat.

2K has been an excellent OS for me........Goodbye BSOD!!!! (Well almost)

Yeah, I went for 2k also. NT4 would have been my choice, but I guess one must move with the times. (Although I still don't like using IE as my "Windows Explorer", it irritates to be told that "you don't need to look in this folder", when, if I didn't, I wouldn't be trying).

I've not had a BSOD with 2000 yet. With NT4, (admittedly when fiddling), I got perhaps 2-3 a year.

I voted XP - we just upgraded from NT to 2K here at work, and I can definitely say I liked NT more - 2K's slower on this machine, for some reason. We've got XP at home and I just love it.

>>> 2K's slower on this machine

Hmmm, can't say really, I was running NT4 on a 300MHz, and am running 2k on a 1.7GHz. I found little to dislike about NT4, and had to switch off a load of rubbish on 2k to get it to behave as I wanted, but otherwise, 2k seems fine.

Whoever voted for Windows ME should be shot!! JK, but really, I think ME is the worst OS on that list. Also, it might just be me, but XP has a lot of bugs. Maybe it's just my bad luck, but I always have stuff getting screwed up on this computer. My other one runs pretty much bug free with 95, and it was great with 2K.

2K and 95 seem ok on my other comp though, and no one seems to have the same problems as me.

I've only had 3.1 and 98. 3.1 took like 10 min to boot up and took 5 min to start word. Hence, 98 seems best.

Yes, but computers were slower when 3.1 existed.

Dumbass.

Brian you seem to be a troubled child.

Indeed, and from your post you seem to be somebody who enjoys eating cheese and watching television at midnight whilst hitting his own head repeatedly with a yellow mallet which he named "fred" on the fifth of February because Fred is a name for both boys and girls.


You know, you can't actually tell anything about anybody from what they wrote on a message board, unless you know their intentions, which is impossible, unless you are them.

You must be troubled if you get pleasure at other people's expense. Moron.

I have 98 SE and am soon to be getting XP Pro. Should I change to XP, stick with 98 SE or give up all together and change to Linux

if your going to make programs that everyone can use, then you stick with windows, and then Upgrade to XP.

Not everyone can use windows programs for free.

If you want a program that everyone can use, make it for Linux. Everyone can get linux for free, and so everyone can use it.
