I think I can make a fair comment on this one. I've been using Win2000 since it was released in 1999, and for some reason, I 'upgraded' to WinXP Pro last week.

When it comes to stability, they're both tops. Microsoft have outdone themselves with Win2000 and they just improved with the way the OS handles DLL's with XP. XP is just as good as 2000, but has a lot more bells and whistles. Some people like them, and some people dont. If you're an old PC user, you wont like XP at first glance, and like me, will probably use the old classic interface with it, so it looks like Win2000! :-)

XP has a lot more support for various devices, and I did'nt have to pop a single cd in to install devices. It knew what everything was and installed itself...nice Everything from my printer, to my digicam to my AGP was painlessly picked up and installed.

I would say give XP a shot, I am right now. So far so good. Thank goodness they included the Classic Windows interface, the WinXP interface looks terrible and is not easy on the eyes.

i would say if you have the hard drive space..have the best of both worlds and put win 2000 and xp on,try them out and if you decide you like 1 more than the other get rid of 1.

but if you plan on only using one i would say in my opinion go with xp.
