Hey ya'all, just joined...nice place digging it!

So yeah I'm about to build a new p4 2.4gig computer and want to know weather to install Win NT 2000 or Win XP, which would be better?
The computer is being setup for Video editing, graphics and sound recording.

My personal opinion is Win2k is more robust...but both seem fairly efficent for Windose.

If you plan to do corporate networking with either, be sure to choose the pro version...otherwise the home version should be sufficient.

XP Pro is Microsoft's best, most robust, and most stable OS ever. I'd go
with that if I were you.

Clearly a conflict...

I run both. For the Business Side, Windows 2K Adv Svr, Windows 2003 Svr and for the Play Systems, XP Pro. It's been a good combo till something goes to hell... If anything Microsoft has the Crash part down to an art form.... :evil:

My Win2k opinion, is just that...my opinion...(i.e. not based on fact). However, after 3 months of the trial version, I have had Zero -- I repeat -- Zero problems with the Win 2003 server eval copy. If they could make all their OS's like that they'd have a winner for sure. The only times I've had to reboot was when I wanted to for whatever reason I wanted to. I've had no proggies close down on me unexpectedly. The only thing I have noticed is after a period of over 60 hours or so, it does seem to get a bit sluggish...but I do have a lot of background stuff running on purpose. After reboot it works just fine.

The reason I chose Win2K as a personal preference for a standard OS is that I have had very similar results.

In Case anyone is interested, I work for the largest privately owned ISP in Minnesota, and Tech Support is going crazy the last couple of days due to this little issue. So, just thought I'd share the problem and solution.

Here is a link to the Technet security bulletin itself...

Here's the patch for the Windows 2003 Server

Windows Server 2003 32-bit:

I'm not doubting you here, but in my A+ Class, they say 2000 is the best and most stable OS for Microsoft. Maybe, the material is outdated.

of course they say that, they're teaching you the 2000 curriculum, and it's
printed in every single Microsoft Press book verbatum.

I'm speaking from my experience when I say XP is an improvement from
2000, cuz I loved 2000.
