This is an easy opinion question. I have Win 98 SE but I probably need to upgrade but I am afraid to. I hear horor stories about XP and others. What do you folks think is the better system?
Thanks,
Leah

XP, if the best option (both for home and corporate users) many will disagree and say 2000 is better, but everyone will agree Win ME is terrible (and if they dont ignore them :)

Hi mamaleah,

Windows NT4.0 is a whopping system and extremely fast. But a lot of things are missing like the device manager and support for USB.
Second recommendation:
Windows 2000 hands down!
A bit slower than NT, but with support for whatever you want on your computer.

Greetings,

LucF

Thanks guys you both answered 2 questions for me. I am upgrading because my new cd burner Nero says it works better with 2000. So I need the USB support. Also I was wondering about the Win ME. Thanks for saving me from more headaches.

My Nero Burning Rom worked great on Win98 (not SE) and when I upgraded to Win2k it worked great on that too.
