Upgrading to Windows98

Upgrading to Windows98, from Windows95 OSR2, was an irritating experience. The Setup program crashed 5 times before completing the installation. Converting the file system on one of my hard drives from FAT16 to FAT32 crashed the system and forced a reboot. Running the “Deluxe CD Player” program for the first time locked up my system. Not to mention, the fact that IE4 frequently freezes the entire OS and forces a reboot. You’d think that after being in the OS business for so long, that Microsoft would have it down pat by now; no so. On the other hand, I use WinNT 4.0 Workstation at work and love it. It hasn’t crashed on me yet. I’m seriously considering dumping Windows98, at home, for WinNT.
