I've been using NT 4.0 for some years now with the same kind of
software as you're using. A few problems with fonts and Quark 3.32
until I understood that Type 1 and TrueType fonts with the same
name should not be installed on the same system. Remember to buy
Adobe Type Manager for Windows NT.
Most other programs for professional use (i.e. non-games) work the
usual way - except that with NT you'll get real multi-tasking.
I still have computers running 95 and 98 (with older versions of
my main software - Office 95, 97, Acrobat 3, Quark 3.32 etc) to
check compatibility before sending out files. But that has
actually nothing to do with the choice of operating system.
