In general, I prefer W2K, but there are other problems. A lot of “legacy” (read: Win9x) software won’t run in W2K. There’s even a piece of software (I forget it’s designation) that supposedly allows older software to run in Win95 (etc.) mode under W2K, but it’s not really as useful as it sounds.
XP manages this much better.
XP of course has its problems. There’s the obvious bullsh** about the licensing and activation keys. But as with any “new” O/S, there’s also a strong lack of drivers. That will perhaps change with time.
