Windows If you are sticking with XP - and plenty of us are - and you're planning to miss the upgrade to Vista read this article on the Australian PC World. It looks at big questions like: will Windows XP still be properly supported by Microsoft and, as a primary development target, by third parties? Is there something we've missed, some hidden gotcha that's going to trip us up?

I got 2 PCs at home and they use W2k. I must say they do anything I want them to do and they do it in a way that has not changed over the past 8 years. My Hardware is 100% supported and W2k recieves updates via IE.

I got a testing environment in the Office with 3 Harddiscs: W2k, XP, Vista (3 GHz Intel with 2 GB RAM)

I tend to use W2k in most cases. It is quicker than the others, everything is more "cleaned up". There are no gadgets that disturb me.

The disadvantages are not real disadvantages.
IE 7, .NET 3.5, DirectX 10, Readyboost ...

These are all unnecessary things. At least for me.

Take my advice: W2k is the most comfortable system that I have used in the last 8 years and if you enter your serial number once - it won´t be checked/stored except for validity - everything is done. You will never be asked again for it and not 1 time will have any annoying pop-up.
