I'm torn between Windows NT4 and 2000

I like NT4 because it's 100% bloat-free, fast, unbeatably stable. Works on old machines too.

I like nt5 (2000), becasue it's compatible, stable, and very fast.

As for UIs, I like win3.1

It's nice.

Actually I love XP, more stable than 2000 w/ SP2 for me, and a it was easier to setup my home network on it as well...

What difference does it make how bloated a piece of software is anyway? Memory is so cheap these days, I really don't see how that comes into play. I like Windows XP quite a bit. I think Microsoft's OS's keep getting better with each release.

Yes, but when your mobo maxes out at 512, the price of mem isn't gonna help.

XP is generally slower than 2k.

I don;t see a reason why it should be though.

Not THAT much added on

although I love XP, win2k will be my all time fav since it was the first time they combined the stabilty of nt w/ the multimedia capabilities of the win9x kernel.

Bloatware indeed, but it loves my 512mb of RAM. My big reason for not going back to 2k is the driver/gaming support. XP detects and installs nearly all of my hardware, and I don't have to fight messy driver installations.
