Wow, you were certainly lucky getting Win2k to run right through a couple of 
beta upgrades and the final version. No reboots required? You should have 
Microsoft use you as a poster child.

Semi-seriously though; how could you have been using Win2k for two years 
without crashing? It wasn't released until early last year and it was well 
known to crash a lot in early betas (straight from some Microsoft engineers I 
know) which you _must_ have had at some point in the two years.

Hmmm.... I guess the flame-bating worked ;)
