I've used XP and 2000 extensively. I had 2000 at home and moved to XP. At
work I still use 2000. I have found the stability and robustness of XP to
be superior to 2000. I have also found that it sports various improvements
including faster startup and shutdown and better compatibility with older
apps. I also appreciate some of the little touches, like the way that XP
has the ability to sync with time servers and its ability to natively handle
ZIP files. As soon as you go away from the hokey XP interface and go back
to "classic", everything is good.
