Well, it's very much the same deal for the many coders who still use Windows 3.1 to develop on. If all you want is the basic facilities and top speed, the latest all-singing all-dancing OSs are pointless bloat.

I do use the newer Windows versions but not for daily work, there is no point. My perfect OS would be a modern re-write of W2K to take into account the advances in web code support and security, but even without that it suits me fine. There are several issues on the horizon for W2K now, such as less support by new apps, and IPv6 support. I might even have to transfer to a mix of Linux and W7 eventually - but not this year.
