I would expect that there are probably 93,000 potential bugs in NT4
Why is this on-topic? Because to enumerate "potential bugs" with no
qualatitive analysis is simply undermining the use of the language. Your
statement is not in accord with my experience of using Windows 2000.
Personally, I could never have used NT4 because of its lack of some
hardware support, but the move from 98 to Windows 2000 ( a clean
install, not an upgrade) has been smooth and painless: everything works -
faster, more reliable and more secure.
That isn't to say that it is perfect: it just seems to be the least worst
version of Windows to date.
