    WinXP - better hardware compatibility, more stable..

    The only reason I'd go to Win98 is to play games that don't work under WinXP.

    XP, becaseu the core of it is based off a more stable OS.

    Sure. I can echo. XP Pro for sure, but it all depends on the computer and hardware setup.

    You can't recommend XP Pro goes on a 333 with 32 mb of RAM. :)

    xp without a doubt - because it's stable and a true operating system (doesn't just run on top of DOS).

    but what DatacomGuy says is very true - it all depends on your machine

    XP - Win98 is the worst Windows ever. And the worst version of the worst operating system means it's pretty bad.

    i believe xp is based off of windows NT, which is known for good reliabilty. i also like the extra features and compatibility of XP. for instance i love how u can just plug in an ethernet cable without setting up anything.
