Hi,

I have an extra older PC sitting around, maybe 6 year old or so home built, and I was thinking it should be powerful enough to run LB2 and Janes F-18 but my question is which OS should I use?

I have all of them back to Win 98 but I think the easiest to install would be XP if it will work well with the 2 Janes Sims, any thoughts?? Fyi, I have newer box for DCS A-10 and the newer crop of software.

Thanks,
Doug

Now that I think about it, a better question would be which is the best/ easiest to use since I will be doing a fresh OS install just for Jane's.

Both Sims will work in both OS's but there are occasional compatibility issues.

If you are comfortable with having a Win 98 box, this would probably get you the BEST performance and fewest hassles.

Sounds like a challenge but may be fun! Thanks for your response!
