Nope not anymore

WINXP, WIN2000 and Red Hat Linux 8 for moi.  :)

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

wow this thread is back

i use it just for testing and experimenting and learing linux.

I have XP on all my desktops, Mandrake 8.1 on my server, Win2k on my primary laptop (900MHz Duron, 256MB ram), and Win98 on my 2 older laptops (1 is 533Mhz, the other is 120Mhz w 24mb Ram)

I just can not help myself - ARRRGGHHHH!!

Lets see what can I do with linux?? Oh yes that right - about everything, with little or no cost for the software. Can surf, chat / IM, email, calendar, office productivity (spreadsheets, documents, presentations), manage my Money (gnucash), databases, burn CD's, listen to Music, games, sync with my PDA, write my own code - compile it or any other program from source. Run a mulitude of servers (ftp, shell, web, chat, news), etc.. etc.. etc.. etc.. etc..

So what are your practical reasons for running anything besides linux?? ;)

I don't use 9x, but my mom and sister both use 98se. I haven't upgraded them yet because they don't like things changed on their computers.

:D:D:D:D:D

My system is found below in my sig, but as that is at university I use windows 98SE at home when home for the holidays.

That system is old, slow, has dodgy hardware and 98 crashes at least twice a day, I hate it, and as xxxSxxx said

I don't use non-NT OS anymore.

nope. xp for me. i really don't see why anyone would still use 9x unless they have an outdated system that can't run xp or 2000. or can't afford to upgrade

I've got two computers. One is an aitiquated desktop from Gateway running Win98. The second is a laptop with WinXP Home. I'd say that XP is definitely the better one, as the old computer does manage to crash several times a day.

I dont use it at all. I hang on to the install disks tho.

I would use it if it had the visual pizzaz of XP. I liked to run under 98lite. I'd trim down the OS so much that my machine was fst as hell. i am sure that if I put it on my 1.2 ghz, 516 RAM system now, it would be on fire.

I am just to addicted to the .theme capability of XP

In my experiences, Windows 20000 Pro is a lot faster than 9x (except on really old systems)

Well I guess that would be faster, with a number like 20000 Pro, it must be good, lol.

On my realy old (late 1996) PC it runs 95. On the one i'm using (early 2001) I used to run 98se but now it uses XP.

I haven't used it in 2 years, but I may need to dual boot it with win2k when I'm ready to study for my A+ exams later this year. :)

My parents still use 98 because I tried to install 2k on it and no graphics driver support above 9x for it :o

I use XP though.
