Good point, Thinkgood!
The old Axiom (or would it be Idiom):"Don't Discuss Religion Or Politics"
Should be edited to include Operating Systems too!
If Win 98 SE2.xxx works fine for your needs, and does not crash constantly, then stay with that version until you come to a point that the Software you use normally will not support the Win 9X platform
(AKA will not run in any enviroment less than Windows XP or Windows 2000 without hanging up and/or crashing).
After reading this part after posting, let me edit it to say:
"If the Software Application You Need To Use Daily, Which Has Been Upgraded Or Is A Newer Version, will not run properly in Windows 98, or anything older than XP / 2000"
That should be a bit more clearer...
I am still using Windows 95!
(actual version is Win 95 OSR 2.52.sumpthin',sumpthin'
You are right about MS' Windows (Winders in the Southeast, Windahs in the Northeast), bringing the light of machines to the general public, and for that I am very happy!
The wide open market introduces benefits for everyone - be them nerd or non-nerd!
Had the same issue with a Friend and an M.E. driven machine!
During an "Over-The-Phone" tech rescue for a video situation, tried to get her to boot to a DOS prompt, but would go directly to Windows.
Safe Mode was achievable, and was where the video tweeking took place anyhow.
Just wanted to verify the machine would boot to a DOS prompt first (
but got stuck trying to get to a C prompt instead of fixing the video problem first, THEN worrying about the DOS boot!
(me have one track mind at times :eek
edited to clear the mud...hopefully!
