When win 2k first came out it wasn't very multi media friendly and games didn't work very well on it. Is this still the case or has it improved since then with updates etc?

yes,its seen improvements since its 1st launch but 98 is still the best for the older gamers.nearly all games from the last 5 or 6 years will run on 98...........2k and xp better o/s for everything else.

Chewie,

So many people are under the misunderstanding that Win 200 Pro is only for hard core programmers / sys admins/ or alike.

While W2K a succession of NT 4.0, some games actually do run just fine under W2K. I have Serious Sam and Delta Force 2 and have no problems whatsoever playing them under W2K.

Tushman,
Thanks for your advice.
Well the computer I am building is for my kids. They have a lot of games. I want whatever is going to work the best for them with the least amount of maintenance on my part.
