Excerpt: I have been running this on my Laptop as a upgrade from Windows 98. Works fine. Sometimes a little slow to start up butt dont let that bother you because once you get into it it is secure and stable. You can run it by itself or with a dual boot with Linux of Windows 98. A great OS that runs just fine. Its NT base gives quicker than Windows 98 responses to my Office 2000 and Visual Studio 6.0. A stable and operating system all around.

Excerpt: Built on the same architecture as XP, 2000 is basically just a more classic looking version. Though its a few years out of date, new software will persist in being computable with it, and its simplicity and administrative options are perfect as just a working computer. Its very speedy and is not surprisingly still used in many, many Offices, libraries, and schools - all thanks to its great networking solutions and slick performance.
Excerpt: Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional is by far the best Microsoft OS on the market. Based on the Windows NT kernel, and integrating many of the features of Win98, Win2000 is a dream to use. I am a home user, and although Windows 2000 is mainly targeted to business users, I have had no problems with it.

Excerpt: This OS is a bogus! It´s not stable as an unix system, and don´t have advanced settings for configuration of the users. The parental advisor in the internet explorer fails, cause it does not select the administrator´s banned sites list in the restricted users options (and you cannot change it in the restricted user mode too). The DOS support is ridiculous... ok, it´s not a dos based OS like the other, but a decent DOS emulator would be great!

Excerpt: Microsoft Windows 2000 has been advertised as the best and easiest Windows version ever. Best it is, but easiest its not. I have been using Windows 2000 for about a year now (since it was in beta) and have found it extremely stable.

Most of the software programs I use, continue to work properly and sometimes even better than their performance in Windows 98.
