Windows Back in 1983, 25 years ago, the world was quite different. The market for the home computer - still a fairly new market - was wide open, but Apple was about to make a major splash with its Macintosh. It was also the year in which a company from Redmond first introduced its "Windows" operating system. What is this Windows you speak of?

Windows 2000 was an excellent system. My employer still uses it over 800 desktops in our workplace.

New guys come in and bitch about XP, and can they have that, but after a day or two, they dont notice the difference

Yup, 2k was ok, but don't you think it's a little unsafe to be running an OS that's no longer supported?

Apart from that, I believe it's a pain that it doesn't have its own wifi tools (many 2k wifi drivers don't even support wpa)
