Simple question - i'm building a pc and have a choice of either NT4 or W98. Any suggestions as to which one is best?
It's an Athlon XP1800+ with 256Mbram
Thanks

Why would you use either? Is there an application that won't work on Win2K or WinXP? I would recommend either one of those OSes before Win9x or WinNT.

Check out my rig:

It depends on what you are using the system for. If it's for games, then go Win98. If it's for Business apps (Word Processor, Spreadsheet etc.) or for a basic proxy or firewall server I'd use Windows NT. Not certain as to how well NT runs on an AMD system though.
