I did like and use windows 2000 till about 2002, then I got XP prof. I like it much better, basically it iis the same being NT. I like the look of XP and the networking..etc.
If you do decide to make the win 2k pc into an xp machine do NOT do an upgrade.

I also prefer XP over 2K, You can upgrade if you want tell them to shove their taboos but it's best to do a fresh install. Backup your data before you install XP.
