Oh for crying out loud you're going around in circles and jumping around from one idiocy to another! Going to your beginning post and talking about multi-boot environment (Windows 2000 and Windows XP) what on earth would you be troubleshooting on the system parbreastion other that the boot files boot.ini, ntldr, ntdetect.com and possibly the scsi ntbootdd.sys?
With regards to your stupid pbuttword utilities are you suggesting that the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) and Local Security Authority (LSA) protected subsystem would also be on the system parbreastion in multi-boot environments?

I'll be more polite here since you seem sincere. Yes, Win98se does lock up and crash more often than 2k-XP, but not exactly a hell of a lot more if set...

Do I think XP is a big improvement on Windows 2000? No, other than a few things aimed mostly at network managers XP offers little new real features to Windows 2000. Much like you I think that XP is mostly fluff and bloat and that the few real improvements aimed at network managers are of little concern to most home-casual users. Would I recommend that users who purchased computers with Windows 2000 upgrade to XP? No, in very few instances would anything of real improvement be gained. But, would I suggest or recommend that people who buy new computers with XP installed downgrade it to Windows 2000? NO! Absolutely not! Much like you said in your first post the users should get rid of useless fluff and set the operating system to their liking.
As for your buttertion that Windows 98SE is superior to Windows 2000 and that it crashes less often, the protected and scalable memory and processor support offered by NT systems is reason enough for users to abandon the W9x platform. Have you ever had an application crash on W9x? Who hasn't? What happens then? You have to reboot the pc. What happens in the same scenario on an NT system? Obviously you know little about that simple difference between the two platforms. You have made that clearly known in one of your other post by implying that you had made a favour to a library by having them keep their Windows 95 systems rather than pointing out to them the obvious shortfalls of the now obsolete Windows 95 and gently prodding them towards the newer NT platform. You have done them no favours! You don't know of the serious memory and virtual memory handling problems suffered by Windows 95, at the very least you should have explained that to them and moved them up to W98. You have also not told them of Windows 95 poor hardware support and of the fact that most new printers and external devices have no support for Windows 95, or that fewer and fewer software developers offer support for Windows 95. Some help you are.
Do I make mistakes and post incorrect information at times? Yes I do. In these times others will point it out to me, then I research the subject and post again saying "oops" and apologize for the error and mark it up to new knowledge gained. At the end of the day if I learned something new I consider that the day was a good one. I know that what I don't know would make up a really big book! You on the other hand think that you ARE the big book! In reality you are nothing more than a leaflet.
