At my house I have a computer which runs off a Unix type shell and one which runs Windows 95. For the past month or so I have had lots of problems with my machine that runs Win95, and there seems to be no way to fix them...I don't want to abondon my windows machine so I decided to upgrade to a more up-to-date windows version, but which? WinXP, NT, 2000,????

Let me here what all you have to say about these OS and tell me which you think would be the right move.

/me rumps Gizzy a few times with the weight of 3

ya, I guess windows sharing with Win2k is kinda w0rd. I setup my shares, and I can connect to other shares easily enough, but when somebody tries to connect to my computer - it asks for a password. I tried every password I had on this computer and none worked! Dunno what I'm missing here.

lol...I had that exact same problem SR...

nah,,,didn't fix it mainly cuz I didn't care about having file shares...

I just wanted to say though, for that, and many other reasons...I would only swap 1 and 2 around...

XP,2k,98,95....ME just....shouldn't have existed...
