As an ardent multitasker, I've found it disconcerting that every time I want to open a new program, I have to decide which existing programs can be closed first. I have loads of RAM, but it isn't going anywhere!
I was told that XP Pro and Win 2000 Pro were very comparable in terms of performance, and of course, XP is the newer technology. However, a friend who builds computers and runs both systems, tells me that Win 2000 has crashed fewer times than XP.
The next thing I had to do, was to contact my company's trusty ol' software vendor, since we already knew each other (I don't believe in installing pirated operating systems). Fortunately they had one last licence for a full installation, going at half the price. And they're going to deliver it to my office! Can't wait.
In the meantime, there will be a massive file backup in progress. Any last words? Speak now, or forever hold your peace!
