Well if you have well condition machine and want to using it as a desktop machine and run 32 bit program on it, you can use Linux. Instead of using Windows 98, there are many specified Linux distro for legacy machine.

According to my post before, people can build specific distro linux based on their need. That’s what I call niche distro linux. There are many old computer spesific distro Linux on distrowatch which you can access it on here.
