  And minus USB support? At least I have heard something that it will not
support USB at all. So if you have any USB device, say bye bye to it.

  But it will certainly not save you memory and other resources.
  For some reason Microsoft thinks that "stability" implies taking hundreds

  You can run a basic internet server with a 386 with 2 Megs of RAM if you
use Linux. I suppose that Win2k would refuse to even install on it.
