NT4 is NOT Win98
Authored by: jocknerd on Feb 26, '04 11:59:27AM

Actually NT 4 was less stable than NT 3.51. The biggest reason for this was that the graphics subsystem (GDI) was not part of the kernel in 3.51 but was added to the kernel in 4.0 in order to speed up the graphics.

NT 4 was a decent desktop OS. Much more stable than the DOS-based Windows 95, 98, and ME. The problem with it was with drivers and lack of game support. It was pretty much a business only OS. I ran it for a while at home right after I sold off all my OS/2 software and just before I got into Linux. Now, I'm pretty much using Linux for my servers and OS X for my desktops.
