I use Win95 Rev 2.1 and it runs perfectly.
My Win95 machine boots into the desktop
with no waiting curson in 30 seconds. Its not
to bad for a 400mhz Celery.

Basically all Windows ports of Doom should work (ZDoom, PRBoom, Legacy, JDoom...), maybe even some DOS ports will work (didn't check it myself).

WinXP is a pretty nice OS, though there is no real need to upgrade if you already got Win2k. Win95 is teh shit though. And who cares about boot times anyways? How often do you reboot your computer? I usually boot only once a day, so I'd not even care if booting took 5 mins.

If you care that much about boot times, why not just use DOS?

I ever had some problems while trying this. In fact only Win32 ports do "really" work :)

Without a computer = no DooM (not counting the console ports you all may have), no source ports either :/

Oh. Bah. My idea fails then.

Try this:

open up the file SYSTEM.INI from the windows folder,
then search for the line starting with Shell=
and make it looking like this:

Shell=c:\doom2\doom2.exe

What is it that WinXp includes which make it sucks 2.1 gb of space?
What features other than the New Restore use that much space?

Well, my WinXP dir is only 1GB. And even if it took 2.1gb, big deal.

Possibly, but it's still a helluva lot better than 98/98se/ME, so for somebody who still wants DOS support on a 9X OS (yes I know WinME ditched DOS), 95B is the best thing available.

/me continues to make backups in preparation for XP Pro.

I used Win98 for two years... I know.

I was stuck with it until about 5 months ago. Fortunately I'm forgetting most of the bad memories already.
