at least there is an actual game that could use the performance optimization. and hypothetically all games based on the Doom 3 engine should have better performance as well. like the Quake engines before it, this will be a big one. and of course the new Unreal engine.

WinXP is way better than 98 will ever be because it's a pure 32-bit OS. Say what you will, it is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

And Win98 don't have no stinkin' NTFS, either.

What it comes down to is that MAYBE you "lose" 50 3DMarks (but that can just be a variable in testing), but you gain stability, compatibility with everything, and did I mention the stability?

And what did I say ? Now I'm working in XP, cos in 98 C++ Builder is crashing every minute... And it hangs up all system with it.

And one thing I've noticed.... LAN connection is working faster of XP.
