But Win98 will give you even more headaches. While that particular problem might go away if you downgraded, the number of criticial app crashes (that take down the entire OS) and regular crashes will drive you insane.
I'd recommend Windows 2000 over 98 any day.
I guess it's a crap-shoot when it comes to systems. Fortunaly for me (and a lot of people I know), we've been rolling sevens for a while.
However, my next computer will probably be a Mac (either G5 or powerbook). It just depends if I can hold onto this job for another 6 months.
