My work computer is running Windows 2000. It has been running non-stop without a reboot for at least 5 weeks. It has not lost a single ounce of performance at all. Programs run excellently. It never stalls. It is fast and efficient.
My home computer is in good shape compared to most non-computer-peoples' home computers, but it is not near as "bugless" as my work computer. It is running Windows XP. It stalls on occasion (mostly when playing games). And a weird quirk or two will happen every once in awhile. There will be times when slowdowns will occur and a reboot is necessary.
I am sure I am not the only who is like this. Why the crap don't our home computers behave like our work computers???? GRRR!!!
