AAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!


*sob* needs MS 2000 or higher *runs away to cry*
What the hell are you running then
WIN98SE
What the shat?! I mean, WIN98 is better than vista, but still. Why not use Linux? Or upgrade to XP?

...

My folks are scared all of the stuff on the computer will be lost, I would if they'd let me, but they've promised we'll get a new computer...
Well, then you got some good "virus protection" since they tend to hit Win systems from year 2000 and up. I have WinME and was always amazed by the virus reports normally showing everything up to ME, no infection or at worst it'll infect but do nothing. After ME, massive doom and gloom. That's reason one to not get XP. Hope you have broadband, because if you want to get XP or Vista you're going to spend some time downloading all the patches and other fixes and upgrades. If you're on dial-up, then you have reason 2.

Want to keep your parents happy and change OS? Get a second hard drive. Make the new one the master drive, use the old one as the slave drive. Start with the new one only in the PC, do new install of the new OS, when done then install the old drive as slave. You can show them everything is still there, nothing was lost, you can even make the old one the master again to prove it still works.

Then, with the new one as master, you decide if you're keeping the old one. If so, reinstall apps so they work from the old one. If not, move them and your data over to the new one. Of course if you are (wisely) upgrading to Linux you'll be locating the Linux equivalents that work with the old data, while Linux in general is very good at running Win apps it ain't perfect.

This sure ain't the easiest way to switch OS, it's a keep-parents-happy way.

You also have a second option, go dual boot, with the two hard drives. Then you get the new OS to play with on the new drive, and you're just a reboot away from showing the parents (again) that nothing was lost.
I wanna dual boot, just haven't gotten round to it, and yah I'm like virus proof. Amount of places I've gone without getting anything....
