On a single, stand alone machine with minimal need for anything (a play machine for children in a room or some similiar usage), THEN GREAT. It is FAST and a stable version of Windows. I have one 98 box downstairs and still use it occasionally but really not often enough. I remember it fondly.
Windows NT Workstation I hated BECAUSE YOU COULD NOT UPGRADE to it from anything. Everything was a re-install from scratch and that wrecked my enthusiasm for this piece of garbage. YET IT HANGS AROUND FOREVER.
Windows 2000 Pro was the first very good version of Windows and XP Professional remains the gold standard. I am amazed at how many offices, though, run XP HOME EDITION which does not allow for joining a domain.
Dell is running promotions, be CAREFUL, that advertise Vista boxes at a good price, but it is the HOME EDITION which does not support office networking.
Anyone for OS/2 Warp?
