since NT systems need much more resources than W9X systems
Not that much I think For example, WinXP is running OK on my friend's 8-years old Laptop with 128MB RAM and 700MHz Celeron CPU, though he has tuned it a bit (by disabling unnecessary services) for comfortable working. Another example - Win2k system on athother Celeron with 64MB RAM working well as a gateway for >30 computers. I don't think there are much people who have computers with lower capabilities than the mentioned ones, besides that, the 9x systems are very insecure by their design, easy to get to ring-0 and mess all aroung, so not recommended for using nowadays.
