Hi folks, I can't decide which is best to upgrade to, XP or 2000.
I have ME just now and I'm thinking of upgrading but I don't know which to upgrade to. I'd welcome some input from you folks on the good and bads of both. :rolleyes:

The core is the same.

XP is more user friendly, but has a higher resource requirement.

As we have no idea of your use of the PC, or your relative experience with Windows its a guess to offer advice, but generally XP is better unless you are a diehard geek?

Thanks Kiwiguy :D , I use my PC for loads of stuff including remote support for other PC's 98 to XP, but I have to exposure to 2000 or XP Pro.
I've been told 2000 is good for VPN.
I also use it for remote backup of PCs. I have DSL. I'm also quite happy with most procedures from Reg up. :)
Wish I knew what a die hard geek was.

Both os work well. XP does some things through a "wizard" that you must do manually in win2k. XP has system restore, which can help when an install or driver install goes bad. XP has the cute cartoon look [although it can be made to look somewhat like the classic view]; win2k has the classic windows look.

My opinion; win2k is for people who fully understand what they are doing and how to accomplish a given task. XP is more for people who do not fully understand how the os works.

XP is newer and [most likely] will have better driver / hardware support in the future.
