    I am looking at a new desktop system. I have used Win98SE since it was first released.

    Is XP compatible with the huge number of aps that I run with 98?

    Is XP that much better than 98?

    win98SE/WinMe only support up to 512Mb of memory so given that memory is so cheap these days that is probably the one killer reason for XP, leaving aside support of peripheral devices.

    In any case if you are buying a new PC always go for the lastest OS you can as it then puts off the day when you have to do anything in that area.

    Having said that I am using WinMe on this PC and it does all I want (I intended to upgrade to XP months ago but still haven't got around to it).

    Most apps should work just fine (most of mine performed even better!). That being said, I believe that XP had an upgrade 'preview' which you can use to see if any issues exist. You might want to look into that. Otherwise, just visit the support websites of those apps you are worried about and check their compatibility.

    Good Luck!
