With all the different flavors of Windows, what in your opinion is the best version? Win95, Win98, Win98SE, WinNT, Win2000, WinXP, Vista, and even remember Windows 3.1?
I hear that hardcore Windows users are in love with Win98SE for some reason? Is there any justification behind this? I mean this is a version of Windows that is definitely not supported anymore, but is the security and stability of this version that much better where it doesn't need support?
Personally, I really like Win2000 over any other version. It seems more secure and stable, and I'm pretty sure its still supported.
I really don't like Vista at all. My one friend tried the beta version that is currently available, and he had it on his computer for all of 3 days before going back to WinXP. Vista is such a memory hog and everything seems "too" overdone.
If I forgot any other versions please feel free to add them in.

ofcourse i used all microsoft holes "windows previously" versions, i was going ok with windows 98 SE and windows 2000, they are both were ok to me, i used since the early one windows 3.11, i used windows millinium and now i'm forced to use windows XP because of some accounting work which i need Microsoft Money to finish it, i used even both profissional and home edition, you can say nearly used all microsoft products, never got rest with any of it, but the best one of these bad products was windows 2000, it's more stable, more secured "though it's full of holes", more safer for resources and much faster than windows xp but at all, i would advice you to throw microsoft products out from your machine and you will begin to get your pc at the best case, specially with linux, it's just an advice, no offense.
Microsoft ages over, LINUX ROCKS

Now that Macs are FINALLY affordable and nice, is there anyone here who is considering getting one? (especially since If it didn't work out a mac mini is a small easy server).
And for those of you who aren't, is it because you don't need a new computer, don't care, or is it still too expensive(please consider the software bundle, and your pirated stuff doesn't count).
Also, if you aren't switching, what would it take?

I finally convinced my wife to switch to Linux after our ISP shut down our account because of a virus on her Win2K box. We told the ISP that we were changing it to a Linux box and they reactivated the account, no questions asked. Now she works between my Mac and her Linux box and we are planning to get a new Mac Mini for her next semester since both our existing systems are patched with duck tape, chewing gum and prayers.
The biggest thing that she has complained about on Linux so far is that she cannot play the Quicktime movies for her classes--- she uses my Mac for that. She was, however, rather impressed when she, the avid Civilization player, was introduced to FreeCiv on Mac and Linux. I may get roped into doing some multiplayer gaming.
The main reason we are considering a Mac Mini is that it is low power (we have had to run off of batteries and a generator or panels before) and will function as a PVR. Especially with many classes being televised or Internet, it will make it a lot easier to be able to just store them on the hard disk with meaningful names and folders with SpotLight searchable keywords. Then we will slurp our movies while we are at it.

Never going through Alienware Again!AlienWare - Good Or Bad
Wow, I just noticed the date on this was from 2005. . . However,Being that this was one of the first google results to come back, I'llLeave my opinion / response here.
Approx 4 months ago,Two of my coworkers had bought Alienware PC's and couldn't talk enoughGood about them. I've built a number of pc's over the years, andWhere some of the fun might be in not having them work initially, andThen hammering out the bugs. . . I'm at a point that I don't mindThrowing a bit of change for a higher range PC.
I found a smokingDeal on their website and after researching the parts through variousComparison sites / tomshardware-esque stuff, I made my decision andSigned up for the platinum card. (HUGE MISTAKE)
I've handled aFew purchases over the years with the "no interest for 12 months" andFigured this would be no different. Also, as all of my banking is doneOnline, I was assured this too would be no different and I could setupAn account with them.
Well, qualifying me for the card was aBreeze, system shipped and arrived in what can only be described as aWonderous marvel of packaging.
First mark, they didn't includeThe mouse / keyboard that was listed to come with the unit. Not aBiggie, as I have a few lying around. Well, first month goes by andThe payment comes due, I'm unable to create an online account withThem. After calling the company (being handed from one call center toAnother approx 5 times, each one telling me "oh no, you need to callTHIS number") I finally get someone that tells me "Alienware customersCan't pay their bills online" If I want to make a payment over thePhone, I'm looking at somewhere around a 30$ "service" charge.
SoNow, I have to Snail Mail my payments to them. I know this may soundLike a silly complaint, but I have but virtually eliminated the need toMail anything. So going to get stamps, place a check in the envelopeAnd drop it in the mailbox is a bit of a pain. (also having to makeSure it goes out in enough time to make it by the due date, or elseThere's a late charge along with all of my back interest beingCharged) The interest part is the big kicker for me. . . Because if myMail happens to get stalled somewhere, I'll be on the line for quite aBit more than I bargained for.
I sent them an email throughTheir "contact us" form online (no email address for them, just aForm). Turns out, their "problem form" only has a few characterSpaces, leaving you having to type something like "pc broke, pleaseHelp" or "having problem with bill". Any attempt at explaining theFull story gets cut short. I get a form letter reply basically saying"yup, no online bill pay for alienware customers". I generally don'tEnjoy being lied to by sales people trying to push computers out theDoor.So here I am, 4 months later, my PC has startedFreezing up (completely, not even ctrl alt del responds) I have toHard-power down the system and get a message saying "New CPU InstalledPress F1 to enter setup or F2 to load defaults" The lockups areStarting to happen about once a day for the past week. I'm not lookingForward to having to deal with this tonight, but I'll try and updateAgain with the results of the troubleshooting.-reply by Jason

QUOTE (the empty calorie)Heh, I LOVE that feature that Windows 98 has for multiple users...you see about 5 users there, but if you don't know any of the passwords, who cares, just click the cancel button to gain full read/write/execute access! Yeah, I LOVE the security that Windows offers, let me tell you...(and one of these "hackers" I've run into that's my age says he can bypass any login password, even my BIOS password, by clicking ""cancel" (idiot...there's no cancel button, let alone any buttons or a mouse pointer in the BIOS)
Tell me this, Ryan... tell me, if you were sitting in front of my computer right now, and of course you don't know the root password, or even the password to get past the BIOS...How would you be able to get on my computer and delete /home/root/foo.rtf. For every way you say you can do it, I will tell you each security feature I have that would prevent that.
I want to see what you actually know.
first off 98 can be bypassed that way but a simple registry key would log the user right back off when they login, as for bypassing the BIOS password, i can clear it by using the jumper on the motherboard if I wanted to. and 98 isn't meant to be secure, clicking cancel is like the xp guest account, given 98 dosen't use NTFS to keep the user out of some files it can be disabled as i mentiond with a simple registry key which if you want i can get you the exact key.
as for deleting /home/root/foo.rtf a simple script could install itself when you view the email its in and run the command to delete it simple, you have to be logged in as root for it to work or a more complex method to get around that would be to have the program write over it in the hard drive without sending the request though the os to stop it, that would take more work to get it to do thoough.
