Subject:QUESTION: Win95 vs. NT 4.0 From:KDFisher <KDFisher -at- AOL -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 14 Apr 1998 12:10:40 EDT
Which O/S do you think is a better environment for writers? I've heard that
NT performance is wonderful; i.e., faster if you're multitasking and working
in a networking environment, but that there are some compatibility issues and
it can't run any16-bit apps. I've also heard that Win95 will fill the bill
just fine most of the time. Which would you choose? Please reply to me
directly. Many thanks.
