    Pros: Most stable version of Windows ever produced
    Cons: Hard to find drivers for some hardware. May not run all games.

    Summary: I do a lot of work for radio stations that use computer automation systems, and these systems must run 24/7 without crashes or other problems. One client was running Windows 98, and it was a disaster. If you did not reboot every day, as sure as ... read more

    Dec 5, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review

    Cons: This product should not be sold to the unsuspecting public

    Summary: Oh DOS, where art thou! I am in the process of 'upgrading' from Windows 98 to Windows 2000. I say "process" because with two multi-hour calls into Microsoft Tech Support, lots of web surfing, including MS's 'Knowledge Base', this is far from over. OK, ... read more

    Pros: Stability, lack of frills.
    Cons: no standard msconfig

    Summary: I have been running and recommending w2k for about a year and a half now. It has never crashed on me. Win98 would crash on me on a weekly if not more frequent basis. The only problem I have had so far with it is that the printer that I had did not have ... read more

    Cons: No games..

    Summary: I have been using Windows 2000 for a while now. I could understand what gave Microsoft a bad rap, until Windows 2000 started coming around. When I first got the betas via MSDN, I thought that this Operating System wouldn't make it two minutes. Well, I ... read more

    Pros: Stable, full featured.
    Cons: Limited 16-bit app support, some games may not work

    Pros: New features, more control over some aspects of Windows.
    Cons: Still the operating system that is so unstable it should be recalled

    Summary: Dont get me wrong, Win 2000 is an improvement on Win98 and ME in my opinion. It more closely bridges the gap between NT4.0 and the Plug and Play Windows operating systems. Win2000 also gives the user a lot of nice new features to customize their ... read more
