That's the best advice anyone can possibly give.
Load up the os, and find out what you think of it. If it suxx, get another os, and try that one. My god, even if you had a 10gig hard disk, there's still enough room on there to make a partition where all you ever do is try out a new os every weekend. And you can even crack the games so they don't depend on registry entries; hence, you don't ever have to reinstall them every time you try out a new os.
Unix, FreeBSD, Linux, NT 5.1, Nt 5.0, msdos 7.2, msdos 7.0, msdos 7.1.
