New Technology Machine - Old Technology OS
Posted on 2004-09-08
This may seem trivial to most, but here’s my question. What’s going to happen if I buy a “new class” computer (something in the P-4 2.80 GHz processor class) and install Windows 98SE? I know you’re probably thinking that I’ve completely lost my mind, but here’s the reason for my heresy. I have an old computer that has been a workhorse in my side business of audio production. It’s a self-built PIII 450 MHz machine with 256MB of RAM with internal SCSI hard drives (remember those?). Anyway, all the hardware and software that I use on that machine work well and (the most important part) sound great. So here’s the big question…is there any reason why Windows 98SE won’t work on a newer machine with a faster chip set, more stable RAM, faster BUS speeds and faster hard drives?
