I'm looking to get a non-XP machine here soon but I'm thinking I should get some recommendations about an OS first.

Basically, I don't play really old DOS games, all the DOS games I wish to play are 1993+, so I don't think I'd need an 3.0, would I? Should I get a 95 or a 98?? Or an NT??

Thanks!

...but there are still sound problems here...

3.1 instead and a 486.
