I'm on a home network with two computers, both running 2kpro. Now, I'm very pleased with the op system. It is solid and almost never crashes. It takes my 233 :cheesy: with 128 megs of "Model A" memory and makes it a much better operating machine than it deserves. My lady's machine is a two gigger with 256 megs of RAM.

My question is, is it worth it to make the move? And, my lady is really nervous about new things, so if I change my machine first to XP first to show her it is excellent will it clash from a network sense (and I realize this part of the question actually belongs in networking)? In other words, will there any conflicts? Or, is the fact they're both based on NT make it O.K.? I'm considering upgrading over what I have because I just recently re-formatted and re-installed everything..thoughts on that?


Thanks

I would not bother installing Windows XP on a 233MHz/128Mb system - it'd run like a 'dog' on a system with low specs like that one.

Windows XP should really have 500MHz/256Mb as a minimum level to ensure smooth operation.

Agreed. If 2K is working well for you, stick with it.


In terms of your networking question- yes, 2K and XP will network together just fine.

I get the message. Thanks for the input; will be taken to heart. And, before long, hopefully, I can put together a new machine.
