Out of the Blue

Users cling to old Microsoft operating systems (thanks Mike Martinez) is one of those weird coincidence articles, as it comes on the day I am finally going to bite the bullet and install WinXP on my gaming system, which has been steadfastly running Win98 since, well, 1998. I've always been happy with '98 as my gaming OS, and appreciate its lower overhead and continued ability to boot into DOS mode, but it's come to a point where that system needs an OS reinstall, and it just doesn't seem to make sense to do another '98 reinstall, especially with hardware and software support dwindling further every day.

I cant believe you were using Win98 all this time!

Its bad in so many ways, man.. i dont even know where to start!

I recommend Windows 2000 for everyone. Simple interface, fast, good for games too.
