No, there was just the black screen (RAM info, HDD) and then a black screen after that. Nothing.

I prefer the XP Pro. I didnt like home, too many system apps running at the same time, most of them useless, and very prone to adware/spyware, which slowed it down incredibly. I liked 98SE, but XP loads faster than my 98SE did, especialy Pro. takes about 10-15 seconds max to load XP Pro. Plus, i have seldom had any type of system failure/crash in my dealings with Pro. Infact, I will only sell Pro with the computers i build.

Ive heard that in the 98 bootup you can skip that stupid logo, how?

What are the tweaks to speeding up 98 and XP that I can do(I'm not too great with computers, due to my parents almost obsession with keeping me off it, but I'm not a total computer moron)

I always wanted to know how to skip the logo too.. but never figured it out...

msconfig is the best and easiest way to tweak

Default Ok boys...

So what is the definitive reply?

Does an operating system affect how a games stability or performance?

I read the post on the 1st page and I thought, oh...ok, my bad /thread. But then 3 pages later its still a debate or a preference.

So...what is it?
