No matter what your preference, done is done, and it's 2k/XP only. While all you "true gamers" are stubbornly clinging to 98 and your imagined "leetness", the rest of us will be happily fragging away! (incidentally, being just as much of a "true gamer", without those pesky BSOD. 6 years without one? Sure I believe you!) But if being leet and not selling out to XP is your speed, then power to you! Just remember you've got NO right to cry when you can't play new games. You made the choice to stick with 98, not us. Crying about not being able to play new games in 98 holds as much water as crying about not getting games for MAC. In both cases, YOU made the decision to run a machine that won't play the new games (or games at all) and since you made that decision you've got no one to blame but yourself.
See ya'll when you wise up and upgrade!
