    If the system is gonna be used soley to edit video then surely its best to go with the OS that will use less resource? Win 98.

    I'd say win2000 for the stability.

    Windows 2000 for sure, its got the reliability and no excess as XP does. Be sure to stay clear of Windows M.E as well....

    2000's Stable
    98's quicker

    Couldn't really say which is better for video editing, but i'd go with 2000 for stability and the NTFS file system.

    Windows 2000 Pro would have to be your choice :)
