  • Pro's Con's Price's WinXP vs Win2000?

    Sorry for such a generic, 'use the search' thread. And I have. But nothing taking price into consideration...

    I'm an old Win98 kid, who is very content with it at home. I'm also a gainfully employeed programmer, which says Im not dumb, but if you don't go find the info I'll never know.

    I have a copy of Win2000 wkstation at home (really old) and could put that on my carPuter. But if XP is only $99.00 at the store I could purchase that an upgrade.

    Is there bottom dollar reasons why I should go XP? Im planning on running Routis 2004, MediaCar, DVD, MP3, Maybe some wardriving apps once I figure it all out....

    Is there a cheaper place to get XP?

    Thanks for the info...

    XP will load faster and have better PnP operations, however be sure to use the PRO version and not the HOME version.
