If you want an NT variant, 2k is the best windows OS. XP is crap, slow, bloated, even 2k had more software compatiblity than XP. I have actually never heard anything really bad about win 2k, besides it being windows and all.finty101 posted on May 14 2004 at 12:35 PM said:what the hell happened with your replys axeman?
is windows 2000 professional any good? i have heard good things about it.
XP isnt faster, it isnt more compatible, it isnt smaller, it isnt more secure, it doesnt have anything that you cant get in any other OS except the nifty user switching. A lot of people are lured in by the eye candy and the fact that its "new", they can care less if its slower, they all have the same mindless zombie consumerism mentality its new it must be good! And a lot of people are too lazy to download updated drivers for their hardware, so they like the fact that xp includes more updated drivers than 98se does, for the simple fact that its a newer distribution, not because its any better.
And yes axeman it is XP thats causing the problems for my FPS, I had multiple testers, some wtih 98se, some with XP, all in the same range of specs, try it out and report their FPS, and their results were about the same ratio, twice as fast in 98se.
But lets not get into this argument, too many people, feel too strongly about this subject, his question was answered, ME is a bad os all arround, even most M$ Fanboys will tell you that, and Nero6 has plenty of issues with any OS. He should try nero 5.5.x and see if that works any better for him, or even Alcohol 120% If that doesnt solve your problem, it might be your drivers, or your OS, or possibly your writer could be going tits up.
