I have to agree with Mess here Snake. XP has to be the best Windows OS I've used in a long long while. Granted, its got a combination of NT to 9.x in it, but there's nothing wrong with having anything like that. XP SP1 and 2K SP3 brings both OSs up to around the same levels of stability and security. The other bonus for XP is that hardware manufacturers bring out drivers for XP more than they bring out drivers for NT or 2K.
