It's like free beer---if you have your own mug (internet connection, CDs, etc.), you can get the free beer (Linux), but if you have to buy a mug (computer, CD, whatever) and then get the beer, it's not free anymore.

Someone here had too much beer

ObGenHardware: I don't drink beer.

Anyways, whoever said 2000 is more buggy than XP obviously hasn't used both of them side by side as much as I have. 2000 rocks.

(But not as much as OS X and Linux, though )

I second that with the exclusion of 2000 being better than XP.

2000 pro would be my choice. I went for XP pro though as I was un educated and attracted by the curves that are now turned off, so I may as well gone with the 2000 Pro, and at least not be worried about MS complaining I have a dodgy copy every month and go away a few days later. :|
