Versions of Windows- Advice


Date: Wed Nov 15 2000 - 19:55:19 PST

II've been shopping for all kinds of new stuff for the computer. I have a
pentium II but still have WIndows 95B on it. I was considering putting ME or
2000NT on my tower but have heard conflicting things about them. I need photo
editing and video capabilities as well as web maintenance. I know my hard
drive is small, but I cannot buy a new one for a year anyway. I am hoping for
the best.
WHich version do I use? Can I get the programming I need in freeware and if
so which work best for my requests? Do I keep my dependable 95? I just don't
know what to do. I have been told conflicting attitudes about PC's as well.
WHich do you prefer. Some say Dell's service is amazing and that Compaq is
not good. It seems I can hear anything I want to hear at one place or
another. SOme say building your system is the way to go. I want a warranty.
Please give me your opinion.
Also- does anybody have advice for me as I learn how to use the Mavica
I have just started playing around with one. I have Picture Navigator and a
couple of other very simple programs. ANy suggestions?
