Re: Just a quick opinion...
Yeah well, I beg to differ.
On my old crappy 300mhz, i decided to do some video bench marks, using a video player called VLC.
I did a clean installation of XP, disabled all the eye candy, tweaked it to kill all un needed services, and made sure NOTHING else was running... then, well, I ran a video. a video at 640x480 resolution.. it was choppy, the video would just skip skip, and well, skip.
So... I format the hard drive, made a clean installtion of win2k, tweak it out by killing un needed services and the such, then I tried running the same video with VLC... the video ran flawless. So yeah.... for that reason alone I prefer to use 2K over XP.
