    I'm anxious waiting for the release of SP2, because I'm using a Spanish version of Win XP, and the RC isn't available in my language.

    Using 98 and have no plans to change. Might put in a bigger or second hard drive eventually but don't really need it. With open source software added, this old box does everything I ask it to without any problems, all day long. When I do change, it won't be to another microsoft OS.

    98SE & IE6 with every intention of staying with it as long as possible.

    XP themes are really nice.

    I never thought I would be so shallow to say this, but they are really cool.

    And it's probably just me with a faster computer but XP seems faster and more stable than my old win2k.,

    Don't fear. Suse 9 is very considerate. Best option is to defrag your disk first, and perhaps save the mbr (I never do).
    Suse will create the linux partitions and install a bootmanager, that will recognise your current Windows system.

    And btw: I'm running a w2k right now. Testing arklinux 11 alpha on my main machine :)

    I still use XP the most.

    XP-Home here -- not really by choice, but my old 98SE system (which I loved) died last fall of old age, probably BIOS failure. And by then, XP was all that was available on new PC's here.

    I think what I miss most is that 98SE would quite happily run the vast majority of my DOS games, quite often even in a window without having to reboot to DOS mode. And of course for all practical purposes DOS no longer exists with XP.

    I voted for XP Home, which is my main box I'm posting this from, but I have 98SE and 95C {OSR2.5} on my two other home computers, so I haven't completely abandoned 9X. :D

    Been using WinXP Pro for about 5 months now without one BSOD yet or problem. Its been extremely stable. Seems like MS finally got it right. :)

    Now im just anxiously awaiting Knoppix 3.4 to come out hopefully in the next week or so. Might be converting to Linux full time soon. :D
