    Windows 2000 is still being used by many as Operating system of choice. Microsoft had released SP4 and after that no service packs came from Microsoft. If you still use the OS, its about time you downloaded the recently released Unofficial service pack which actually took almost a year to compile by the author.

    Windows 98 Unofficial service pack also came out last year and went on to become very popular with users as it made the older OS stable and usable by many on their not so never machines. If you have slightly older machine say circa 2000 thereabouts Windows XP is not the preferred OS as it really takes up a lot of resources and makes the system slow in every respect. Windows 2000 should do the trick for you and with the Unofficial pack installed you need not worry much :)

    windows millenium edition?

    hI. i'M TRYING TO SORT OUT MY MATES WINDOWS "MILLENIUM EDITION" PC....

    Just noticed this thread , and was wondering, is windows 2000 the same OS as Millenium Edition?


    The problem with his system is that, either due to a bug or virus (I havn't pinned it down yet) the monitor keeps switching off at the desktop stage upon rebooting...

    Full thread here:

    Windows Millenium is dressed up version of Windows 98 and uses FAT 32 file system. Windows 2000 is derived from Windows NT and uses NTFS file system as well as FAT 32 which is same as what Windows XP has.

    In my opinion Windows 2000 is very stable compared to Windows Millenium. Wndows 2000 has limited gaming support as it is geared more towards the professionls and Windows Millenium is geared for home users. I personally would stay away from Windows Millenium as there more issues to deal with compared to Windows 2000. Both operating systems are no longer supported by Microsoft.

    ME is fat32 and cant read NTFS.

    Oh I like 2000 better than XP. XP might be faster but I dont like all the extra crap like updates that ya have to do.

    Download 2000 SP4 and Directx 9 and games will work good on it.

    ME is crap if ya upgrade over 98 do a clean install and its ok.

    SUSE has a 64bit version Im using 32bit.

    Direct X 9 needs compatible VGA card to utilise the new version. Installing DirectX 9 is OK as it has backward compatibility. Check VGA card to find out what it actually supports, latest cards of course would support it.

    People who use latest gadgets invariably find Windows XP much better to work with.

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4817.html

    Ya most PCs that were built when 2000 came out dont have a new video card.

    Every OS that Microsoft comes out with has bugs security flaws, compatibility issues etc which requires updates. In my opinion Longhorn will be no different. Only time will tell :)
