Just to let you know, I have been running win 2k for some months now, and in
that time I have had no fatal crashes, a couple of apps have gone belly up
from time to time but that has to be expected. machine is running 24/7 month
in month out, and only ever gets rebooted when something I install requests
it.

when you move to Linux, look at vmware (if you have the pc for it), and run
a win 98 box on a virtual machine so you can use the windows version of
moray, which is well worth it (I started using it back in the dos days so I
know!)

spatch, moray (and now rhino) are my main reasons for sticking with windows
as my OS

as to making the move - just jump!, and figure the rest out when you land
