    One's inner self
    closest you can get on a defy to 4.0.3 (ICS) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CyanogenMod
    it allows the loading of other ROM OS images

    the wiki page should explain

    windows 8 at the moment most likely wont work on a machine built for 98 as the size of it and the hardware being old
    windows 7 starter edition might have a chance but again if you reasearch the minimum requirements for starter edtion should make it a Yes or No answer
