Windows NT Or 9x

  What do you recommend Windows coders use, NT or 9x?  

  Now that Windows2000 is out (with full DirectX support) I highly recommend dumping NT and 9x and moving straight for 2000. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

You might have problems getting proper drivers (I still can't get drivers for my digital camera) and some of the NT4 drivers don't work as well as you would hope, but you can't match the stability of 2000 itself unless you go with Linux (and it stings just a little to say that, being a Linux fanatic myself. :)
