i have been running 2K for years now.
i have absolutely no plans of upgrading to xp unless i am flat out forced to.
i use it on 4 very very different computers and performance is always there.
my box down below has had xp pro on it before for about 2 months when i couldn't find my 2k cd and the only difference i seen was xp had the better start up.
i play games, surf the web, run many different appz....it's never let me down.
i do run pro on my laptop however, simply because the driver support was poor from my manufacturer and they woudn't give me tech support since....it didn't come w/ 2k.....*******s i say..but.....
