Yes, I realise that XP will probably give me best stability, but are there any other reasons for using W2k/XP? I ask because I have an old TV capture card, for which there are no drivers for these OSs. Do you miss out on any functionality of other hardware/software? System will be AthlonXP 1.6/SiS chipset MB/Radeon VE/Delta 410. Intending to use PowerDVD XP at the moment, but will experiment with Win DVD perhaps. Delta 410 to be used as preamp, too.
