    Thanks HT~

    (What?? That happens with MS Products?)...
    No, it doesn't.............Gates has a low pain threshold and he knows that I know where he lives

    Actually, it is quite a nice operating system IMHO (well this is a P4 2.26 with 1024Mb of PC 2700 )

    OK I have had it with HDD failures but otherwise pretty sound. Same story with XP Pro..............

    Ack Phtt!..............Gates is trying to put me out of business?

    Thank God for skiddies, adware and spyware merchants

    Hey Hey,

    I can't say I've got any real complaints with XP Pro... It's quite stable for me... I never experienced 2000, we ran it one semester at school and had a bunch of courses covering the inner works of 2000 but I never had it on a leisure machine... Maybe I'll throw it on one of my old 350s and see how it holds up.

    Peace,
    HT

    xp is a prettie version of 2000 imho.

    Well it has some extra stuff like better drivers.

    win2000 has been my os of choice of os for a long time. I take a copy of the install cd with a sp4 slipstream in my toolkit. Looks like that cd is going to need replacing now.
    Since the beginning of time, Man has searched for the answers to the big questions: \'How did we get here?\' \'Is there life after death?\' \'Are we alone?\' But today, in this very theatre, you will be asked to answer the biggest question of them all...WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?

    I beg to disagree,Win xp is far more stable platform when compared to 2000,Pretty and stable this can be used both for office and home alike.
    A lot of stablity Tests have been done on it and it proved it self to be superior to win 2000

    According to the Update page...
    This update consists of previously released recommended, critical and security updates for Windows 2000, rolled into one convenient package. Installing this item provides you the same results as installing the individual updates. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer
    now...if these are ' previously released ' updates then, I assume, if you've kept your system updated...you don't need this package?
    I am, of course, working from the assumption that Microsoft understands the definitions of ' previously released ' and ' same results '.

    Or...am I wrong?

    I certainly don't want to spend 2 hours and 12 minutes downloading something I already have.

    Eg

    Eg, think new install.

    True, but for new installs... Its been a pain to install 2k with sp4 only to go out to windows update (or WUS) and find another 50+ updates (many of which require individual install and reboots).

    Even after loading xp sp2 you have another 30+ updates to apply.

    It will def. help out for me.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    We are still running many copies of W2K here at work - I actually prefer it over XP Pro. I still do active installs of W2K so this should save me a little bit of time in the future...

    Yes, the consolidated update is certainly for reinstallation scenarios. Over here I would expect to find it on the cover CDs of most of the PC magazines next month.

    I have always found WIN2000 very stable, and much more tolerant of lower system specifications than XP. I think that is the reason why it is still very popular. A lot of organisations such as non-profit, military, government, education and healthcare cannot afford to indulge in a large scale hardware and software upgrade.

    Even if they had the money IT would never get the budget. Let's face it folks, we are at the bottom of the food chain, particularly if what is already there still works to the satisfaction of the users. What they frequently have to do is wait for natural replacement to reduce the one-off cost to an acceptable level before going to WinXP.

    My view of WinXP is that it is a sort of hybrid, or cross between Win2000 and WinME. It has the stability and security of Win2000 with the fancier user interface of WinME. It also has the recovery mechanism of WinME. Obviously MS have tried to improve things as well, but those seem to be its origins.

    I'm about to load Win2k onto my aunt's machine ............
    and as pointed out, it IS a pain to load W2K + SP4 and STILL need a bucketful of 'extras'.

    I also carry a copy on CD. Need to get into the burning seat again

    Nice find ..........
