    Should I make the move to 2000?

    I'm running ME right now but it's way too slow, I keep reading about how good and stable 2000 is, should I make the move now or wait for Windows XP to come out cause I guess it's suppossed to be as stable as 2000?

    depends on the games you play. Some games won't just plain run under the Operating System. For compatibility verification, check out www.ntcompatible.com

    If you are a gamer, stick with 98SE.

    It depends what games you are running and what system you have. If you've got at least 256MB of RAM and are only playing newer games, I'd go to Windows 2000. Its a big step, but well worth the effort.

    Well as it says above i have only 128MB. However i plan on upgrading both my RAM and my processor by the end of the summer. Right now the only games I play are Roller coaster tycoon and as soon as i get my butt to Electronic Boutique, Tribes 2.

    I'm not sure about Roller Coaster Tycoon, but Tribes2 runs fine in Windows 2000. Just up your RAM. By the way, Fry's Electronics was selling Tribes2 for $24.95 this past weekend.
