I told you it was starting again ;)

I think most of us agree 2000 is/was the last bastion of hope for MS.

I was using XP Pro at work but have upgraded to 2000 SP3 running Office
XP SP2 - an extremely stable combination.  XP has far too many bugs,
especially with the display (I love the way that all the cute rounded
windows disappear when XP is about to crash in a spectacular way -
showing that it is still normal windows with some bodge applied over the
top).
