For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, W2K Pro now gives you the WSOD, i.e. White Screen Of Death. Yes friends, they changed the color! So *of course* you won't get the BSOD. BTW, my sister just got a new PC with W2K Pro, and right out of the box it froze twice, both times apparently having to do with Dial Up Networking. One was actually pretty interesting -- while it was shutting down DUN, I hit ctl-Esc and it started painting the start menu. It froze with a ghost image of the start menu showing.
