As a general rule of thumb, I usually don't upgrade until SP2 comes
out. Windows2000 has its own issues, which I won't elaborate on. As
for XP, I don't know about anyone else, but I find the XP window

are all wrong. I don't need any of that crap, as it looks like it
would frankly be fairly resource intensive.

was the most stable version of Windows to date. Unfortunately,
Compaq has not backported its proprietary drivers [the WinME drivers
don't work on Win98SE].
