Yes, it is . Is the first "matured" OS they've released as far. Very good for mobile and desktop computers, networked (peer2peer or client-server) or not.

Hi, win2k is complete 32-bit operating system. It has some of the conveniences of 98 (such as plug-and-play and device manager) without the problems of maintaining backward compatability with 16-bit apps (dos and windows 3.1). Thus, yes, win2k is a stable operating system. It is built on the windows nt kernal so like nt 4, if an app freezes, you can close it out with task manager and other applications will not be affected. Win2k also allows many configuration changes without a mandatory rebootwhich was one of the problems with nt4. Hope this helps.

One of the best features of W2k is the Task Manager (refer to NT for a close example). It makes the OS a lot more stable as it allows greater access to processes that go "out of whack". This is a lot less frequent than in W9x but it is still mucheasier to use and control the operations of the PC from this interface. Two BIG thumbs up to W2k from this end.

Peace,
BKPalmer
