You seem to be describing the SP1 of Windows 2000.  When SP2 came out, the
lingering Client99.exes was cleared up.  But never the less, WinXP will have later
drivers & the latest support.  In my experience, WinXP was identical to Win2000,
except WinXP used a little more resources & because I have 2 cpu's, I need WinXP
Professional which costs too much compared to Win2K Professional.

| I have been using Protel 99SE with windows XP Professional for about 5
| months. I started out with the beta evaluation version of XP. My impression
| is that it is more stable than Windows 2000, and many times better than
| Win98. I have done some crude testing, such as opening 6 instances of Protel
| at once, performing one or two basic operations in each instance, then
| closing all instances of Protel. Then, I go in to the task manager and check
| for any lingering signs of Protel. So far, Windows XP has done an excellent
| job of keeping Protel in check. Performing the same test in Windows 2000
| resulted in one or more instances of Client99SE.exe lingering in the task
| manager, hogging resources. Also, I have seen a reduction in crashes or
| system lock-up. I would see an average of 1 system crash or lock up each
| day. I define a crash or lockup as any situation that requires a re-boot of
| the system. With Windows XP, I have had to re-boot less than one time per
| week. Although I am uneasy with the licensing scheme of Windows XP, for me
| it has proven to be a more stable and robust platform for Protel than
| Windows 2000 or Windows 98.
|
| I would really like to hear other experiences with Windows XP.
