I wonder why we never had access to this stuff at work, I'm sure it would've
been of some help.

As it was, whenever we had a problem with a system which we couldn't fix in
20 minutes or so we'd just format the hard drive and re-install windows from
scratch. :-(

Yes, I'd be using NT4 myself except that I cannot run DVE (Vectrex emulator)
under it. I haven't tried it under Win2K Professional yet, but I'm none too

One thing I will say about Win2K is that it seems to be far more stable than
any other M$ OS on my hardware thus far. NT4 was giving me memory faults
when running OE5, Win95 is flaky at best and Win98 wouldn't run for more
than 4 or 5 minutes without "freezing" up completely. Sigh.
