What version of Windows do you still use?
 
Just wondering what version of Windoze everyone here still uses:

On how many machines? I have two Win 2k boxes and two XP pro machines for use in workplace environments ;)

Err... XP Home, since the College of Business at my Uni is something of a massive M$ bastion. Of course, that also means we're a part of MSDNAA, so I've taken the opportunity to stiff M$ and download 2000/SP4, XP Pro, and Enterprise Server 2003, just in case professional life requires any of them.

I figure that, by the time 2003 is no longer supported, lack of M$ product shouldn't be an issue anymore...

... Why is 2000 lumped with ME? ME and 2000 are WAY different. :)

Absolutely no doz here, nothing M$ ;)

Using Windoze XP Home shipped with my PC (it's not so easy to find one without it here in Germany) only to run Alcohol 120% and install some progz that don't install under Wine (e.g. Nero) Everything else (HL, Delphi, WinRar etc.) runs under Wine.

yes, they are different....

ME was M$'s attempt at making the millennium bug a reality

and 2000 you have to run as administrator to do anything, but you have to run as a regular user to have any fun (like having settings)

very annoying

I know, I even have K3b but I must sometimes burn nrg images that's why I use nero.

I guess the original poster thought that "2000" = millenium, therefore Windows ME must be an alternative name to Windows 2000. But in fact ME is based on Windows 95/98 while 2000 is an NT version of Windows.

Someone should change the options to: Win 3.0/3.1/3.11, Win 95a/b/c, Win 98/98SE, Win Me, Win NT 4, Win 2000, and Win XP.
