Re: Installing on W2K SP2

Weren't there a ton of security holes in Windows 2000 fixed by SP3....
SP4... (on up)?

Sounds like asking for trouble. Besides, doesn't that service pack provide
an uninstaller?

hmm. There is always the possibility of using Nullsoft installer one day.
I've had the same "if it ain't broke, don't upgrade" attitude for a long
time... but I must say, that constant change is inevitable in the software
world. I think it would be a good idea to just bite the bullet and go for
SP4. It will be fine.

My 2c.
