Benefits of Windows 2000 vs. Windows 98
Posted on 2001-06-21
I administer a system for a small business that integrates some PC's running Windows 98, some Windows NT 4.0 machines and an HP9000 running HP-UX. The business also hosts its own websites and has a site server, mail server and proxy server, all of which are using Microsoft products. For the most part, everything works fine.
Here's my question. Is there any compelling reason to upgrade my Windows 98 or NT machines to Windows 2000? I've taken the position, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.". However, I also want to be sure that I'm not missing some features, which would make the jobs of the employees here a little easier or more productive.
I realize that this is a very general question. However, I'm really only looking for a basic pro-con discussion of the issue and I know from experience that the people that frequent this board are well informed.
