I do side work upgrading/repairing computers etc.  I have this one friend who has 4 PC's at her business that inventories her lumber sales.  Every once in a while I have to reinstall Windows for various reasons (some unexplainable).  She's on Win 2k Pro now.  Its been pretty quiet for some time now.  Well she's going to have to upgrade to XP because something about Quickbooks not being supported on Win 2k.

Alex, have you considering using Linux as the OS and VirtualBox
running XP? If you run the VB image in full screen mode and you
couldn't tell a difference. Plus this way, backups are much easier,
just make copes of the disk image file ;)
