Hmm... funny, but for me Direct3D in Win2000 is even better than it is in Win98. I don't know what the hell of a core the 2000 ver is made up from (not talking about the NT tree), but it sure is much more stable and reliable. What I have to complain a little is its OpenGL support. A bit poor, since Win2000 is primarily made up for interprise end-users (and not all bosses like to have their employees playing at work).Originally posted by Demigod79
Windows 9x is generally the better performer in gaming situations, as it's always been. The NT core just plain sucks for Direct3D. On another note, XP (as well as 2000) is a lot more stable and robust, and it gives you much more control over the system. I'm primarily using my Windows 2000 partition now but sometimes I have to boot into ME if I wish to run any old games or apps. I think I'll hold off upgrading to XP until I actually need it but despite whether I do or not I'll still keep my old ME partition.
