Well, the virus, which there was this massive big deal about, seems to have went out in a wimper, rather than anything particularly destructive. And it seems like microsoft are the ones who are benefiting from this with people downloading virus patches and stuff.

Of course you can say that, Windows 98 is crap and it has nothing to do with XP, the kernels of both are totally different.

Well i don't think transfering to any edition of windows can really be called an upgrade though.

Why? Do you know what are you talking about?
Have you studied the internal function of Windows systems?

No, i haven't. But from practicle use, they all seem to crash about the same amount, and have the same sort's of problems getting anything to work on them.
But i couldn't use linux myself though, because of the compatability problems with game's and USB support and stuff.

Well, you are wrong, in practice Win NT derived kernels are at least ten times more stable than the 9x derived ones.
Compatibility? I can count the Linux games with my fingers.

They don't. I have Windows XP at home and Windows 2000 at work (I'm a C\C++ Senior Programmer) and both works perfectly.

Well i have used systems with XP and 2000 for what must total a few days (non-stop), and they crashed a couple of dozen times at least.

I admit though, there is little competition, and for what windows does offer, its worth all the problems with it.
