I was shocked to see that certain areas are still using Microsoft Windows 98 SE. Well mainly I saw them in businesses other than in home use. For how many years I have not used it I probably would have forgotten how to install it since it is a FAT32 operating system - it is so much now just installing XP/Vista.

I used win 98 until March of last year when I bought a new computer with vista. Two years before that, I was still using win 95. I prefer the old DOS systems, they use far less memory making your system much faster and give o more control over the system. In my opinion win 3.11 was the best version and it's gone downhill ever since, starting with win 95. The new NTFS OSes like xp and vista make it much more difficult to diagnose and repair problems. With the old FAT (file allocation table) systems, you could reinstall windows over the old version without reformatting and losing every other program installed which was great when the only problem was actually in windows and not anything else.

Oops, I meant win 4.11 was best in my opinion. Of course there's always compatibility issues, your favorite old DOS program won't run on win vista and your fav new programs won't work on the old DOS versions but I guess that's how they play the game and keep selling products.
