    I'm still on 95 at work because I have such a pants computer that it won't even run 98.

    I thought most of the bugs were sorted on 2K now..

    Yeah, Win2k SP2 is pretty cool, I've had no problems since I updated ;)

    However, the original version did blue screen and moan about memory allocations :(

    personally I like to bitch in Redhat, since you don't get the shitty MS help. unfortunately the games are a bit on the batty side :(

    atm tho i've managed to crack (in the conventional sense) my WinME disc (not that I liked WinME anyway) but it leaves me without a dual boot :(

    Being a 56k biatch on my home comp this has caused me much trouble, so contact me if you feel like sending a WinXP Pro copy to me

    :cool:

    I might just upgrade my PC at home. How much better is Win2k than 98?
    Is it worth it?

    It's a hell of a lot more stable since it was dev'd from NT for networking. I'd upgrade if I were you... I never liked 98 anyway;)
