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...

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 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.
