It's not just that I dislike it. I have to deal with the problems it
creates, every day at work. I have also supported OS/2 and it has
nowhere near the problems Windows does. I'm the one who has to tell a
user that the computer is so messed up, that it has to be reimaged. I'm
the one who has to try and figure out why it's so slow lately. I'm the
one who has to tell someone that he just lost a lot of his work, because
when Windows crashed, it took out most of his documents etc. It's not
just dislike. It's called "experience".

The desktop in XP can be far more annoying than W2000.
