I'm getting sick of ME crashing and causing problems so I'm going to change OS. I do not want to use XP because I've heard its bad and I don't like its layout. I have been told that either Windows 98, Windows 2000 or Windows NT are the best 3 but I wasn't told which was the best.

I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

NT is just an earlier version of win2000. Win2000 uses ntfs file system, win98se uses fat32 file system. Both win98se and win2000 are quite stable operating systems, win2000 is more pro than win98se. Win2000 will be suppported longer.

nah. windows 2000 because it is really much much more secure than 98. NT is unpopular these days. I prefer xp pro myself though.

If I had to choose between 2000 or 98se I would choose 2000 because it will be supported longer than 98se. For the rest, they are both pretty much the same.

What do you use your system for? With NT or 2000 you may have some program compatability problems, and neither was designed for gaming.

I'd recommend XP, just keep it updated, and it's the most secure version of Windows available.
