If you still use Windows 9x in some form or another please tick, it seems original(ish) cos i see this side of the forum looking a little empty hehe but im sure a lot of people at least still dual boot with it. Tell us why? :happy:

i use win98 on my proxy server to run wingate as a NAT with dialup , mainly cos its all it needs , and because the spec of the server isnt much , but enough for the job :)

I have one of the PC's on the network still running win95, but that's only because the program delivered with the scanner can only run under win9x. And also because that computer isn't much: a P133, 1.2G HD and 48!!!! MB EDO RAM....

Luckely I just builded my own new computer. Duron 1300, 512 MB SDRAM, etc. Works like a charm under WinXP. The rest of the network is also running win2k or winXP

Greetings,

Thekk

LonghornXP

I have XP pro and tri boot with two versions of Me. I need one Me for the language, and the other came with my computer, and it helps to understand the other Me. But I mostly use Me as a controller program. XP and Partition Magic and other PQ software are not compatible. I do anything with PM in XP and Xp will crash, over time it harms XP. So I use Me for partitioning. I get Me to run very well, no crashing here. It's not a bad OS, just not to the level of XP.

I love XP pro. Tried Longhorn, not so good an OS yet.

2k is alright. Just I'd rather have XP anyday.

What do you use Red Hat Linux for? I don't know of any practical reasons for installing or having it.

One comp here has 95 on it :blink:

But both the new ones have XP all the way. It's so much...better...one of them was an upgrade from ME, and I have used 98 many a time.

I am using win 98 in a temp pc I use only on vacations when

I return to my home town.

I am quite pleased and rarely had any BSODs. Many things aren't

done as they are supposed to and the 320 MB of RAM are not utilised as they should.
