No Win98 DOOM 3

In today's (unusually late) DOOM 3 newsbit, a post on PlanetDOOM confirms from Activision that DOOM 3 will not run under Windows 98 or Win98SE, but that Windows XP or Windows 2000 will be required.

You know we dont see anymore the BSOD with XP but how many time have you see the "Send a report to microsoft" thats the BSOD

Yes, but the dialog that appears when an APPLICATION crashes, not the OS. A single app like Opera could foce a reboot in Win9x. Most of by BSOD's in Win9x forced me to reboot.

There are still "Blue Screens" (blue background and white text) in 2000 and XP, but they're very hard to get. You need either a major hardware problem or a kernel crash to get them. I've had 1 real BSOD in XP since I started using it in 2001, but that's because I was screwing with my processor settings (trying to O'C it).

If you run Win9x, power to you. I will admit, the ability to run some of my older games is pretty tempting. But I don't play so many games anymore, just the occassional new title like Thief III or Ground Control II (eventually DOOM3 and HL-2).

Most of my PC use is every-day stuff or software development. And let me tell ya, when you're writing software, you want as stable of an OS as you can get.

P.S.
I'm able to run Red Alert 2 on XP. Hell, my brother still plays it against his friends (like, yesterday). But yeh, a lot of oler stuff won't.
