IS Windows2000 faster than XP???

I had to setup Win2000 on my XP machine (1800+/1gig RAM) to run a few older CAD programs. Well, it took 30min to install and another HOUR to use Windows update (!!!)

The system works GREAT - no issues, BUT I noticed right off the bat that a couple programs that I installed to run on both Win2k and XP seem to run SIGNIFICANTLY faster on Windows2000!! One of the 3D applications seems MUCH more responsive under Windows2000.

I don't have a ton of junk running 'behind the scenes' on the XP side, so what could cause the difference?? I'm going to restage XP once service pack 1 is released so I plan on some serious investigation.

Any ideas/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

^ there goes your problem. Some 3D card & 3D software don't work very well with XP.
Try upgrading your graphic card. That's what I'm going to do tomoro :-D

also the way XP is built... the more you use a program the faster it gets..

I had vid driver problems with XP... and everything seemed faster in win2k but no more... I can tell you this much... at least my desktop looks sexier now :)

The sys admin at my job says 2000 is faster but I've done the same memory tweaks to both systems and can't tell a diff. My home PC is a little faster though.
