STABILITY and Paul Warren


What is a Kernel? and Paul Warren

  • The engine of the operating system

  • Part of operating system that loads first

  • Stays in memory

  • Provides services that the rest of Windows and applications use


Kernel Comparison and Paul Warren

Windows 98

DOS Kernel

Windows 2000

NT Kernel


Windows 98 Stability Features and Paul Warren

1) Scandisk

2) Registry Checker

3)Disk Cleanup Utility


Windows 2000 Stability Features and Paul Warren

1) Kernel-Mode Write Protection

2)Driver Signing

3) Kill Process Tree

  • Built in DVD, USB, IEEE 1394, PnP compatibility

    • Increased support for multimedia applications

  • Advanced Configuration and Power Interface

  • Microsoft no longer requires that hardware manufacturers create Win 98 drivers

  • Microsoft originally scheduled to discontinue support for Win 98 on January 16, 2003. But because of its continued popularity, rescheduled until June 30, 2006


Windows 2000 Compatibility and Paul Warren

  • “Industrial strength”

  • Not designed for games and certain multimedia applications

  • Improved USB and Plug-and-Play performance

  • Hardware and Software Compatibility List

  • Applications that are platform specific or driver specific


Windows 98, What’s the Point? and Paul Warren

  • Web-view enabled Shell

  • Active Desktop

  • Start menu control

  • Windows Update

  • Power Management

  • Task Scheduler/

    Maintenance Wizard

The statistics above are extracted from W3Schools' log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures


Advantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 98

  • Better performance: Generally Windows 98 utilizes the PC resources better:

    • The file system is better integrated into the operating system, which gives new functionality over Win 95

    • Program loading can be up to four times as fast as Win 95

    • Hardware support is significantly improved with a new driver model, and all new chipsets etc. are supported


Disadvantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 98

  • Poorer driver selection for Plug and Play devices

  • FAT 16/32 kernal is less stable than the NTFS kernel

  • Hardware manufacturers are no longer required to create drivers for Win 98

  • Support for Windows 98 will be discontinued on June 30th, 2006


Advantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 2000

  • Windows 2000 faster than Windows 98 by approximately 30 percent

  • Using Windows 2000 Professional (in a small business environment) could reduce the company’s directly related IT costs, as well as improve employee productivity by cutting computer-related unproductive time by significantly


Advantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 2000

  • Professional grade networking which means:

    • Multi-users have total privacy when logging on to the same computer

    • Sharing file, folders and printers with total control over accessibility

    • Users of the same computer cannot install programs unless you (as the Administrator) specifically permit them to do so


Advantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 2000

  • The operating system maintains support for FAT(16 bit) systems but also contains support for the FAT 32 file system popularized by Windows 98

  • Allows creation of NTFS file system (New Technology File System)

  • Built-in configurable scheduling to create backups

  • Facilities secure access (Virtual Private Network) to your home computer from another location either through direct dialing or Internet

  • Compared to Win ME and Win 95/98, very rarely requires reboot due to change of configuration


Disadvantages log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures

Windows 2000

  • Cost (approximately $220 to upgrade from Windows 95 or 98)

  • Windows 2000 has greater reliance on hardware and software capability list

  • If you are using an older, slower, processor your hardware may struggle with the increased demands placed on it by Windows 2000


Resources log-files, but we are also monitoring other sources around the Internet to assure the quality of these figures
