Once again you've demonstrated your ignorance. Plesae stop posting Instead go and an read about everything that runs on Linux from the smalled netbook to the world's faster supercomputer. Read up on much of the net run on Linux. Read up on VOIP telephone systems. Read up on big iron servers running. Hell it wouldn't suprise me if the Trekbbs was running on a Linux server. And there is no way in hell you could be running a combination of Windows 2000 and Windows 98. Their core design was totally different. Win2K was derived from Windows NT which had alwasy been pure 32bit. Windows 98 evolved from the 16bit line (Windows 3.x) and while predominately a 32bit operating system still had a large amount of 16bit code. Because of it's NT origins Windows 2000 had a level of security that 98 could only dream about.
