Does anyone know if you can run a Windows 2000 Client to NT4/Server? If so are there any drawbacks, aside form the obvious 'extra' things you can get with 2000.

Another thoughts? I am purchasing some new PCs and was wondering if I should get a W2000 to look at?

Windows 2000 clients work fine with NT4.  Microsoft designed 2000 to be an upgrade to NT4, but while they may be a monoply, they aren't stupid - loosing such backward compatibility would be an awful business decision.
