Don't mentally compare it against XP everytime something is
different, as in "Grr...I never had to reboot after inserting a
PCMCIA card under XP."

Win2000 and WinXP are different OSs. Work with each of them on their
terms and you'll be fine.

The only differences I've seen is in the area of networking, not that
you can something only on one of them, it's just more automated on

My work machine is 2000 and my personal machine is XP. I switch back
and forth with only very rare and very minor much so
that I don't even keep track of them.
