Win95OSR2 or Win98?
What is your preference for an operating system? Are there better benefits for sticking with Win95 or should I continue using Windows98?
If you want speed go for win95 or if you want new and fancy features go for win98. It depends on the role of the computer, if its gona have DVD, USB and any other new hardware well you'll need win98 to take advantage of them. Or if you want to have speed and don't need all those thing and are happy with win95 stay with it.
Can I deltree c:\windows to get rid of WIN98 and install WIN95. Will it pick up my apps without having to re-install them..Thanks..
If you deltree, the registry will also go with it, rendering your progs useless. Try renaming Win.com and installing over the top.
I agree with "Pation",unless your going with the latest hardware add on's, stay with Win95B.I've been using it for 2 years now, and I've downloaded/deleted all kinds of software;added and removed various hardware, without any major problems(I found the problems were me, not the OS!)You have to "know" the OS before you make any changes. Especially if your adding/deleting any hardware.Compatibility is a easy thing for hardware mfg's. to state,however,in the real world...it's not so easy sometimes....... DawgTuff.
one thing you'll lose with removing win98 are a lot of updated drivers that win95B doesn't have in it's cab files. As long as you have a stable way to get to the net to download those drivers, or you make good back-ups of the drivers that come with your new hardware, that isn't a big deal. As far as USB goes, if your win95B disk has "with USB support" on it, your USB should be okay. Most of the time, your mobo manu web site will have a USB patch on it for win95. typically a driver you have to install to activate USB on your board.
Last thing is, win95B and win95C are now 3rd generation MS OS - look for support for it to be phased out over the next few years. You can probably skip win98 and wait for win2000 to come out. It is an NT product which means several of your old games probably won't run on it, but then I've got a stack of 5.25 floppys and an old drive that I swore I was going to build back into a system to play those old DOS games, if you know what I mean.....
