can you be more specific in what hardcoreness is? i'm more fond of how nt 
operates compared to win2k, but i prefer the updated win2k gui. your gripes 
are something that are easily fixable...dont install it and configure 
explorer to act as the old explorer. i tend to think of the new interface 
as Bob Grown Up.

my gripe on 2k/XP is the included computer mgmt console / mmc snapins. i 
hate it...i dont one everything to be in one interface, it _feels_ slow and 
inefficient. i prefer to have the option to have computer mgmt pieces 
(usrmgr / eventlog / etc) executed in their own program (like NT) rather 
than a snapin.
