My previous system was like yours (PII 266Mhz,128MB RAM) and was using win98.
I was always have to monitor memory usage,tweak swap file usage;restore a lost,replaced
dll. When win2k appeared I read all reviews to see if win2k is better. All they say in one
was "win2k is slower,needs more resources,games don't run good". And I believed them :(
I once used win2k for two days but I was so under the effect of bad reviews I couldn't
anything. I just gave up when I couldn't find a driver for tv card. I'm still angry for
those lost years
with win98. Now I have a more powerful system and using xp. It's a joy.
