    I've used Win2K on my (work and hobby) main PC (notebook) for over a year,
    and see no problems except the display after SkyMap 'All-File' sort, and
    passing a file name parameter to IridFlar - and I have workarounds for both
    of these.
    I have WinME on our home PC - that needs the ansi.exe solution for SkyMap.
    I may use XP on my new (work and hobby) main PC (notebook) - but I will run
    VMware to run W2000/DOS/NT/Linux in protected "partitions" without reboots.
