Read on which one got our best score on our long term test and usage.

"How is it that WindowsXP feels more sluggish in operations on a 2.4 GHz Dual Xeon machine than Windows2000 on my 900MHz laptop?"

I agree with this statement. My 400 running Win2K feels faster than my 1.6 running XP home. I've tuned XP as far as it can go too, it boots into 90MB of RAM and I've applied every tweak in every combination out there. :-(
