on the contrary i think windows me is an excellent operating system .. it might be well suited for the specs you've given us. 98 is too old and you might have a few problems with xp unless you get atleast 256mb of ram.
I have tried all but windows 3.1 out up till now. I had ME on my old PC which i had for about 18 months. I only ever had one conflict on it which unluckily happened on my first day of having it....it very rarely crashed....it supported all my hardware and software...it has a better looking interface than 98 and has some handy little added features such as system restore.
98 is too old and a little birdy said that even microsoft are writing it off and aren't even gonna bother supporting it anymore soon. I mean, think of the rubbish that microsoft come out with and not even they can be bothered with it. What does that say.
I do think that XP is best tho, but i think your PC may struggle slightly and if you use your computer for games then only the newest games are supported by XP...and those games will no doubt hammer your computer.
98se will be a good choice for your sys. specification. It is a very stable O/S, if correctly installed. And you need have no worry regarding M/S support/updates, the only ones you will require are for IE and these will continue to be available. Regards J.
