Subject: Re: XP vs. 2000 (was: Avos and strategy (was: avos))
From: H C (hccebay_at_yahoo.com)
Date: 2003-12-16


Hi, All.

To me, the Remote Desktop feature, that was added in
XP, is worth the upgrade alone. I use that feature
daily. It is faster, more stable, and better
integrated than any of the other remote-control apps I
have ever tested, and I have certainly tried most of
them. The speed really shines over a high-speed LAN,
where other solutions simply can't keep up.

My only regret is that they left it out of the Home
edition.

I did find that 2000 was slighly more stable than XP,
but only slightly. XP's improvements are worth it.
