So after re-installing Windows XP every month for four months due to being contaminated with Viruses & Trojans, I decided to turn off my Pentium 4 and use my Celeron with Windows 2000 as my main Internet PC with the Pentium 4 using Windows XP as the back up.

One thing I remember about Windows 2000 and, 98 is using them for nearly a year without being contaminated with viruses. I actually re-installed because I used to destroy the registries accidentally. I do not use the Internet for Pornography, Peer To Peer or, Bit Torrent so, I didn’t see why I was getting so much viruses.

Upon researching the average Windows 2000 user brought forth this chart then, it made sense.

Looks like I will remain on Windows 2000 and, I’m sure 98, & 95 users can relate why.

With Linux being more in demand on the Internet than 2000, 98, & 95 the chances of being infected is minimum to none. We are officially out of the limelight and, Virus/Trojan developers will not waste their time attacking those operating systems anymore.

to me those numbers mean nothing ,as winxp is being used by more people ,its only % numbers .
last trojan in this house was when my wife was reading recipes on a flower makers website ,using xp, had she been using win98 or 2000 it still would have happened in my opinion

2000 isnt the same as ME. Which one are you referring to?
