I just ordered a new Athlon 1.0 ghz machine to use as a giga machine. I am wondering if I should use Win98 or ME for giga? The machine will have 1024 RAM and I\'m wondering what kinds of problems I might run into with Win98. Thanks.
I would really go with Win 98se. Windows ME is mostly 98 anyway, but with extra CPU hogging \"window dressing\". I have never seen anyone post a credible advantage for ME in an audio production PC. Several major PC magazines actually withdrew their early ensorsements of ME after closer testing & thats very damning!
If you are only using the PC for audio, you can also try out the excelent win98lite shareware. It chops off many useless features and saves RAM & CPU power.
Ultimately, waiting for Tascam to port GS to Win 2000 or XP should be the way to go - especially on the powerhouse PC you just bought.
