I have a presentation for my company and I am looking for an answer to this question.  
Why should my company consider switching from Windows NT  to Windows 2000, considering XP is available?
We have way too many workstation with nt4.0 on them and the push right now is to bypass windows xp and go with windows 2000.

I don't think your company should consider switching from Windows NT to Windows 2000. They should go with Windows XP. A couple of big things are better driver support, better plug and play capability, system restore, built in remote support, and more... A short article was written about it here: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article10-001
