Oh, as do I. What a number of people have mentioned is thus: one of the things that many software companies mention in regards to the pricing of their programs is that because of piracy they must artificially inflate their prices. If that's true, shouldn't WinXP be cheaper, given that there should be fewer people pirating it? Heh.

The problems that many people had with the OS when it was first released were the result of the infancy of the OS. As its matured (most) manufacturers/software companies have upgraded/changed their products to make them compatible, and combined with Microsoft's compatibility patches (gotten from Windows Update) things are running much better. Of course, there *are* a few companies that can't seem to be bothered with making drivers/patches available for the OS. You can check out compatibility for the software/hardware you own at NtCompatible
Though I can't speak for everyone, obviously, my framerate is actually better in Win2k.
