Some of the components are 10 years old. My hard drive was bought back in 2000. I'm even still using Windblows 98.

But sitting across the table is an older one with a Pentium 2 that is also running Windows 98. Still use it from time to time online.
Downstairs is an even older one that is used every so often to get my e-mail. I also use it with my EPROM Burner when I am doing some machine level work. It's an old 386 machine running Windows 3.11 and DOS 6.2
And finally retired and used only for sentimental reasons like when I want to recall just how far we've come, I have an old IBM XT running DOS 3.3. That baby has a "huge" 10 Meg (Not a typo!) Hard drive that still works! And it's dual 5 1/4" floppy drive! It even has a few games on it, gotta love the monochromatic graphics!

I've never really had much of a problem with 98 it's the hardware that usually gives out. I would like to use some Linux sometime but while my old copy of 98 is still working I will keep it. I have Linux Debian on a CD but it's not the easiest to install and the installation guide that came with it is not very clear. I've attempted to install it several times but I am unable to master it. Maybe someday I'll just break down and get a copy of Lindows (I think it's called something else now.). Unless I decide to just get a Mac.
