    This is probly the most freq. question asked but here we go. I want to know what o/s is best for my needs. I will list specs below. (It's no super comp, but its my baby )

    Etower Emachines 633ids (Celeron)

    128MB Memory

    66Mhz System Bus

    15Gig Hdd

    8MB Mem Card

    I don't plan on playing any games, I really just want the PC to surf the internet and to record TV shows wit my cap card and to burn CD's

    Windows 98SE.
    XP may be too much.

    Add memory, memory and more memory. It's so damn cheap and is your best bet for improving whatever O/S you use.

    Get a better graphics card. Practically anything else would be better than what you've got.

    I'm sure others will chime in.

    Good luck with it.

    I'm thinking Windows 2000 given what you say you want to do.

    I was going to say try XP. I have setup quite a few with only 128megs ram. Works ok. More ram would be better. If you don't like it you could always go back to Windows 98 Second Edition.

    Forget 95 & ME.

    I agree, try XP and if you feel it's too slow go with win2k unless you want to play lots of games, which I doubt considering your computer isn't very fast.

    Well then use 2k or XP.

    Use 98SE or 2k, XP might be a bit much with that Mobo architecture and DEFINETLY add memory.

    2k will be plenty more bug-free.

    (install size per Micro$oft)
    Win98: 120-295Mb, depending on the configuration(ave. 195Mb)
    Win2k: 650Mb
