Here's what I don't understand. 2000 pro, is close to perfection as far as a run of the mill OS goes...why pay to have something that may boast a mess of features, but jeopardizes everything on your hard drive and prevents programs that work well in XP and 2000 from working as they should?

What is the big attraction?

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
