Why does WinNT 4.0 slower than Win98 ?

By didit ·
I've use OS with WinNT 4.0 and Service Pack 5.0 or 6.0. My PC specification is Pentium II with 35 MB RAM. Before, I use Win 98. But Now, After I use NT, my PC get more slower to access the Internet connection. All specification are the same, but Is that right WinNT slower than Win98 in all kind ?

Please, let me know at :

Windows NT is a larger and more complex operating system. It has more features, but it also requires more resources. I would suggest increasing your memory. 35MB RAM is barely above the minimum requirements for NT. You will get much better performance with 64MB, or better still, 128MB.

That's the 1st time I heard of someone running an odd # RAM. Where did you get the 3.5 chips? LOL
All kidding aside, the 1st answer is right. NT uses more resources but is MUCH more stable OS. Go with 64MB at least <G>
Better yet get win2kpro. It's plug & play, but you'll need even more RAM with that. If you don't need all the NT / win2k features, just stick with win 98.

First and most important, RAM is cheaper now than it has been in a long, long, long time.
You need at least 64MB of RAM for NT to run well. You could optimize the pagefile(swapfile) for NT. RAM is the answer here!
