Re: RIP Windows 98...
ME was the worst OS I've ever used. I had to reformat so many times because of it.... It must have been at least 10 times. Eventually I just tossed it. 2000 pro. was good, very stable. My dad still uses it on his laptop and hasn't had a problem with it yet. I still like XP, in my experience it's been pretty stable and I like it.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
