Win2000 is quite stable, at least stable enough for most people. If a crash 
happens only once in several month, people don't like it, but they put up with 
it if the rest is ok. Please compare up-to-date technology on both sides!

I don't see any performance difference when typing a letter, no matter what 
program I use. Most of the time is spent by me, trying to figure out how to do 
something, not by the program.

I believe you are comparing from the point of view of Homo Logicus, not Homo
