    Potenial for XP is great, just need to wait till its developed a bit more, still buggy and a little uncompatible.

    Windows 2000 has service packs which have been developed over the years, just hang in there for the XP ones(and companies to develope XP compatible products).

    Dont get me wrong, Windows 2k is very nice:p

    Depends on the system. XP can be a compatiblity nightmare if you don't have the newest equipment.

    XP works great! even on my parents' P2 300mhz with 128 BLT....its much faster than w2k even tho M$ says w2k may be faster than xp on systems <800mhz

    i am really beginning to dislike XP. Everything is just running slower for me, and I got 512 megs of RAM and a decently fast 750 Mhz Athlon. Windows 2000 was a heck of a lot faster at running programs, multitasking, and games. I get 68 FPS in Q3 with XP and around 81 in Win2k, 800x600 HQ with a GeForce2MX. I get around 100 % CPU usage in XP from time to time for no real reason even if the system was idle for a bit, its just uncomfortable to use from time to time. The only upside is games compatibility, games like High Stakes can run easily now without compatibility updates. I think after a few service packs it may be better but right now I like 2000, but I am staying with my XP/98 dual for now.

    Funny... I had the same problem with 2K.. that's why I moved to XP.

    XP > 2k imho.

    I love Win 2k... I use the ADS version on my workstaion when I an get away with it... That is when there's no other users...

    It's not as "friendly" as Xp but I think it's more stable and maybe faster...

    Xp does have a lot of nice wizards though...
