1. What new features does XP have (that 98 doesn't) that you need or would like?
2. Is your PC's hardware compatible? If it's a new system, it probably is. In fact, I'm surprised it didn't come with XP unless you requested Windows 98.
3. Is your software compatible? You'll have to check each program's system requirements.
4. Are your peripherals compatible? (printer, scanner, etc.)
Answer each of those questions and you'll know what to do.
I currently am running an up-to-date version of 98SE on my about 4 month old P4 2.4Gh, 800 FSB, 512K pc3200, etc. For Xmas I received a full install version (not upgrade version) of XP Home.
Should I wipe out the system and go for the full install of XP, or keep on running 98SE.
What will I loose/gain by staying/going with each operating system, and what would you recommend??
