Hello,
        As of December 20, 2001 Micro Warehouse still had Windows 2000 upgrade
available.  I am also thinking of purchasing a couple of extra copies for
future use.  From what I have read,  there is very little advantage in
upgrading from Windows 2000 to XP.  Certainly none when you factor in the
extra cost and inconvenience of software activation.  The change from
Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 however, was impressive.  It was almost like
getting a processor upgrade.  Protel 99 SE SP6 seems to run better than ever
on my old PIII machine.

        It just figures,  every time I find something good in a Microsoft product
they have to go and trash it.  >:(

I tried hard to find some Win2k pro.
While I was successful now, I know I won't within a few month.
I stocked a few Win2k for the upcoming machines that will last
another 6 years. We'll see what happens till then.
