    depends on what you plan to use it for.
    2000 is designed for servers. XP is based on 2000 code. Both are good.
    XP is for personal systems.

    Personally I think XP is great. I couldnt' ask for a better setup, but then again I don't go around downloading stupid stuff that could screw everything up. You will find others who say 2000 is better than XP. Really it's a toss up. Go with whatever you think you will feel more comfortable with.

    W2K does not have all this activation/registration stuff.
    It looks less pretty than XP, but is just as good and definitely very VERY stable.
