Windoze doesn't leave too many options

by Oz_Media In reply to wich system

I work in a site with Win95/98/98SE/200 Pro and a coulpe of XP Pros. Yes it's a headache, unfortunately because of the many users and different levels of ability, WinDoze is our only option. I use Win2KPro in my Notebook but have downed from XP Pro (preinstall) to Win98SE in my desktop.
XP Home is OK for Joe home user who doesn't want control over system details, registry entries etc.
great point and click Multimedia system. if you need to Network it go for XP Pro because networking and XPHome don't like each other.
For someone who is a somewhat experienced user that likes to tweak and explore the OS, I'd say stay with Win2KPro, it seems to have the ROOT or Administrative access I like best.
Remember, Microsoft has already started coding Windows Yukon and another platform that will "surpass" XP, so if you're just trying to stay current, forget Microsoft, they want people to feel incompatible and forced to upgrade so they will always have a new super duper OS for the "beat-the-Jones'"crowd.
Personally, stick with Win2KPro, if you're used to it, you will miss it when you use XP.

Depends on your intended use.

Why not cheat? - use someone elses research! - Check which OS is offered by the Big Brand-Name boys on Systems similar to your own. They wont be installing anything which gives them hassles!
Or, use a Boot-Manager to allow you to have BOTH - try them both, and you'll soon find which suits your usage and style.
Check the various Forums and read of problems/experiences which others have run into with each OS.
When it all boils down, it is up to you, because only you know what you want to do and how you prefer to do it!
