Default Upgrade reasons.

Hi all, I am thinking about upgrading from win 2000 to XP but I have to convince my fatherwhy we should. Can you all help me so I can give him 5 reasons for wanting to upgrade to Windows XP? Thanks to all who help.

Its colorful.

But serioulsy. XP does everything that 2k does with a few more bells a whistles.

XP SP2 has a decent firewall.

It is a little more user friendly as far as sharing files over a network.

Its more aimed at home users, whereas 2000 is aimed at corporate users. (ie, more user friendly, more wizards, etc)

It tries to keep you from getting updates if you "pirate" it. (MS would have us believe this is better)
