There is a loss upgrading from Win2K to XP.  You loose security features, some OS
management tools and custom-ability, the Net server, mail client server, dual CPU
support, and the list does go on...  Upgrading to XP Professional, you will receive
the same things as 2K Pro.

| 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.
