Win95 sucks, Win98 doesn't suck as bad, WinME is terrible, WinNT is nice,
Win2K is awesome.

I don't know about WinXP, but it's looking pretty promising (minus the
backwards compatibility).

I love Win2K...I don't even use Windoze 98 anymore (in fact, I might just
convert it to FAT16 and make it a DOS 6.22 partition...or perhaps Linux?)

Don't use Win98, for your sake.  Unless you have simplistic hardware, it
WILL crash.  Get Win2K if at all possible...it'll save you a LOT of trouble!
