They are NOT both the same and it is NOT a bad OS! It was a very good OS! I liked it! I liked 98SE, 2000, and XP.

But to get to your question, it can just be compared to Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP SP2. All it is is just minor improvements made in various different locations. Hope that answers your question

Windows 98 SE was also a whole lot more stable than the original 98.

Yes and some program's requirements state that they are compatible with Windows 98SE and not just WIndows 98.

Windows 98 SE is the first version of Windows that was compatable with Windows NT 32-bit drivers. Windows 98 First Edition and Windows 95 still used old 16-bit drivers.

These were the biggest changes to SE...

-DVD-ROM support

-Internet Connection Sharing: Allowing more than 1 computer to share a single internet connection.

-Improvements on Windows 98: These improvements include faster startup time for running applications, better USB support, and improved power management features.

I rock!
