If you notice in my second post, Win2k is still compatible, it just is more finicky. Apparently certain settings will cause seamless mode to be non-operational (On my laptop, that is).

Though it is odd that 2k is missing from compatibility mode (ive noticed that too) and I find it especially weird, seeing as 95, 98, & Me are all within compatibility mode still (98 & Me are grouped as one option {Windows 98/ME}.) Maybe it has something to do with NT? Or maybe its just the amount of software that was released for it? (If it was for 2k, I believe it should work on XP, meaning the logic in thinking is that they just use XP compatibility mode.)

No idea, man. Maybe it is because 2000 and XP are so closely related that they decided to drop it :\

No it isn't. If you learn a new language, no sense learning it a second time for a different country which speaks that same language.

Cool. Maybe I can try out some older versions of Linux now ^^

Installing Mac OS 9.2.2 custom version for the PowerMac G4 MDD w/ FW 800 onto a Zip Disk because I am out of IDE HDDs. But my G4 MDD w/ FW 800's PSU died and took the GPU with it. So I have to use a dumpster Mac to do it all while the eBay man fixes my PSU.

Wow.

In some experiments the other day with one of my old desktops, I found you can upgrade directly from Microsoft Memphis (98 Beta, Build 1400) to Windows 98 Second Edition; which is interesting.
