After many years of trusty service from my Windows 2000 install, I have finally given in and bought Windows XP for Achilles.

Hello, dark side. Where are those cookies you promised?

Oh, I stopped liking Win2000 as soon as I tried XP. The mouse acceleration just doesn't click with me, and I hate the way you can't hold down Backspace to get to the desktop from a deeply-nested folder on slow machines; you need to press it after each Backspace operation has completed.

And other than UI, the kernels are very similar, so unless you have Server / Advanced server, you aren't really losing any functionality, are you?

But... You paid, as in real money? :-)

Yes, I did actually pay for it.
