    I would like to know what really differs them. Do I practically get SE when going to windows update? It seems to me all which is downloaded is security fixes. Weren´t there other things as well which SE fixed? Like usb-issues, do I still have them?

    what the f?@* anyway I had 98 first then I bought a Digital Camcorder which needed firewire to work, i got a firewire card but it wasnt supported properly by 98 so after speaking with Microsoft who coulnd't help me do crap I had to upgrade to SE which worked fine. So theres one thing that SE supports and 98 doesn't <IMG SRC="smileys/knock.gif">

    Yes, I´m afraid there are more things than you get at update<IMG SRC="smileys/frown.gif"><br>
    <br>
    But weren´t there any servicepacks too for 98? I tried, but couldn´t find anything.<br>
    <br>
    Anyone have more info, or maybe a link?

    Windows 98SE has better support for AGP, Firewire and USB.<br>
    <br>
    Windows 98 should have been called Windwos 95 (Complete). It was pratically just Windows 95 with ALL the bugs removed. <br>

    Yeah all the bugs for 95 were eliminated, unfortunately a whole bunch of new bugs were introduced <IMG SRC="smileys/biggrin.gif"> Hence why SE came out.
