I've been running WIN2K PRO on a Dell 330 Precision Workstation for over 3 years. 1GB RAM & 170+ GB 10,000 RPM SCSI drives. My hi-end audio production stuff does NOT like XP ;-( This is not my logging computer, thank God.
In spite updated Service Packs, Norton Anti-Virus & a Firewall, I got busted into and 961 files infected just for starters. Regardless of operating systems, until we get the diddly squat losers in Washington replaced by tough Ham/Net-Smart Contester types to implement some KB legislation & empower law enforcement, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER connect your logging computer to the Internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My solution for virus proliferators has been (for years) to Castrate the b*st*rds.
