Windows 95/98
Yeah, these are a REALLY, REALLY old systems. Does anyone still have these? I still have a Windows 95, but I don't use it anymore. Wow, that thing was slow, even for it's time. I remember when I had a Windows 95, and there was Windows 98, it just seemed to blow the 95 away. Even today I think the 98 is pretty fast, I remember it being so. Does anyone still use them? By the way, are they worth anything (because they are so old?) Probably not, but I'd regret it if it was and I didn't ask.

If you arent going to be using any new applications, they are fine, but most newer applications require at least 2000. If you have a really old computer, XP would slow it down more because it requires alot of resources.

I have them all. I started with Windows 3.1 and it took about 13 folppy disks. Since then, I have owned every version, except 2000 server. I still have all of the disks.

IMO Windows 98 and Windows XP are both very good versions. 98 was a very stable release, and when they went to Windows ME, they really messed up.

I do not have Windows 95 but I still do use Win 98. I like this OS due to it s compatibility with all the stuffs....Also, this OS is basically used for the testing purpose or QA for the installation/unistallation of new softwares....Can know a lot of specifications while doin some crap work on it

I used to use 98 for my other machine, like the admin says, its better than 2k or xp, only IF the machine is really slow and resources are really low. XP sucks up resources like no other, but i STILL recommend XP since it might be only a bit slower, but it will definitly not have those 'once per week crashes' that 98 experiences.

I've got an extremely old Mac, a Dell with XP which is an excellent computer, and an old Dell Latitude with 98. I actually really like 98 although its really slow of course, but I like the layout and everything.

btw, I hated ME. :-p
