    I dont really play many games thats why I want to switch, if I do play games most of them are older games wich will have no probs running on 2000.

    And I have a question what does IMO mean, everyone uses it.

    One of the big advantages of win2k is it uses less ram and runs faster. Any thing that You might need from XP you can regain by installing VMware.

    You can run XP in VMware as a guest OS on win2k and not have to fuck up your files and folders with a lot of added garbage like a dual boot with 2k/XP would do.
    If you have more than 384mb ram, XP should run just as fast on VMware as it did as a standalone.
    And if XP pisses you off, right click and delete will make you feel soooo much better.

    I got info on every program and game I use and all are compatible with 2000. Plus I dont have much ram(256 shit) so I could use a faster OS.

    Just don't forget to grab the chipset and board drivers for win2k. Some are included but a lot aren't.

    If you just install it and start using it, you may not get ultra dma 5 and stuff like that. It's a real drag running in PIO mode.
