Go to XP from 98SE???

Recommended Posts

Guest Gregg580

I see there is a return to a older version of windows feature to run apps in. An emulation shell of sort. Any reason not to go from 98SE to XP??

Gregg - The only issue I've ever had with XP is that the FS2002 framerate is some 8-10% slower irrespective of driver versions. But, for me, the incredible stability of XP more than offsets the loss. I've let XP run for weeks without a reboot and I've never had a BSOD or system hang in 9 months now. I was one of the XP skeptics but I'm a believer now. It works really, really well. (Actually, there is another issue. I can't get XP to run Hellbender. I love that old game :-) . But I fixed that problem with a 98SE/XP dualboot).TripNorthwood 2.2a at 2.72Ghz Abit TH7II-R512MB Samsung 40ns PC800Gainward GF4 64MB Ti4200 300/57030.30's DX8.1 WinXP ProInwin case / Enermax 431W PSU3DMark2001SE = 12055http://service.madonion.com/compare?2k1=4088814

In my case, its oposite than Trip. FS2002 runs about 10% faster in XP.Stability, I totally agree with Trip. It's really stable OS. Hard to belive its from MS :( ;)

I think XP runs it a little faster for everyone but me Georgi. I've just never been able to figure out why it's slower here. I've tried everything I could think of and it still runs slower - on two machines. So, I finally said to-heck-with-it and just started enjoying the flying :-) . And I agree, it's hard to believe MS built WinXP.Trip
