Even though it's not currently supported, I'd rather have NT 4 or not
at all. I wouldn't even run 98 when it was current. There's no
excuse for the lack of security DOS provides.
Heck a well firewalled Windows NT 3.51 system would be preferable.
If you HAVE to run Windows that is. Personally I'd run Solaris 8 x86
or a BSD followed by a Linux.
