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.

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...

you need to have an account on the win2k machine, with the user that your logged on as on the machine thats runing 98 95 whatever. So on 98 you dont really change users so whatever the name that you put in during the install give it an account on 2k and a pass and it should work fine. does for me.

ya, like Gizmo said. You can't even view my shared resources. The moment you double-click on \\Master in the network neighborhood - you get a login prompt with a "username" that cannot be edited.

Alright thanx...but what about WinNT?? Hows that match up to the rest...ease of use and all that bs is no problem...I just want a solid Windows platform.

And one more thing...is it possible to have a machine that has both a Unix and a Windows OS? You would just select which to run while Bios is still booting it up or something like that?

Answer 1: darnit, I forgot NT. That alone should say something.

Answer 2: Yes, dual boot works.

I like win2k the most... i would use it if you want sumthing really stable. I cant stand XP... the chiddish interface ( i know you can use classical mode) and it requires alot of memory. I like win98SE, i get a few errors every now and then but it has been good for gaming etc. really fast... alot faster than XP and when i installed XP like a few days later the damn thing crashed every time i restarted it. sum I/O error. Im running trios (triple harddrive selector) and running win98SE on a 30gig and win2k on a 6gig and i mostly use win2k every time i get on my computer.
