I just loaded this shit on, and WHOA! This fucker is fast!

My GUI runs so much faster, I have to adjust my typing now, because there is no delay!

Also, it installed in about 7 minutes :).

I'm definitely going to keep using this. I'll evaluate it's stability...If it sucks, I'll switch back to Server 2003.

What are your experiences with this OS?

It was cool, in 1998. It's a great OS though, I know a lot of people who still run it. We still have a few servers running @k at work, they've always been stable. XP/2003 do handle memory and paging a lot better though. Not to mention, the GUI is pretty boring.

I actually prefer the GUI over the "candy land" GUI in XP/2003.

This GUI is also a fucking speed demon, which atumoatically wins points.

1998? It says (C)1999!

Who runs the default theme anyway? I like the new start menu, when used with a compact theme. My favorite so far is OpusOS. :thumbsup:

I could be wrong, but I was pretty sure it was out in 98. Eh, it's been a while.

Actually, it launched in February 2000.
I stand corrected then. Like I said though, it's been a while.

I've been using 2k since it came out. Stable as a bitch. :thumbsup:
Anyone who can't run 2k relatively trouble free, better pack up his computer and ship it back. He's too stupid to own one.

OH SHIT!

I had a driver crash, and now Add/Remove Programs stopped opening. What do I do to fix this? I'm running some third party shit that I really hate right now.

(Fucking motherboards. AC'97 Audio - "Auto." Funny how it didn't turn it off when it says "PCI Slot X - Multimedia Audio Controller." Yes, that was the Turtle Beach there.)

XP is so bloated that it's nowhere even near 50% as stable.

I'm running 98 right now though. This old K6-2 doesn't have enough RAM to run 2000 Pro well. It only has 96MB.

Well, upon boot, it only had 8MB of RAM free.

I had to use Cacheman in order for it to get another 20MB free...Of course, the machine was still slow then.

I never should have given all my big-ass SDRAM sticks to my buddy :(.
