It's great for computers that don't have the resources available to run XP well. Most hardware and software supports Win2k still, though if you plan on using Norton, you're SOL. McAfee & other antivirus progs support 2k, so you're not nekkid online. You won't have all the shiny of XP, but with slow hardware, you'll want to install everything on low-res mode and work up to what you wanna look at. Win2k also has both regedit and regedit32, so you have options for your own personal registry hacks. It was released with all the previous windows utilities, though most of them are not linked from the start menu and you'll have to dig for them in the windows, system, and system32 directories. If something you have doesn't have a specific win2k driver, most of the time the XP driver will work, or there will be a driver for download online.
