Windows 2000 ... *sigh*

It seems that the more I use Windows 2000, the more I hate it. Same with anything, actually.... the more I learn about Linux, Perl, web programming, MySQL ... hate them all. Come to think of it, there's very few implementations of anything that I really like.

Anyway, today's win2k silliness: I'm on a machine at school right now, a P3-766 or something, with 256 MB of ram... normally these machines fly, almost as fast as my win2k machine at home. Right now it's chugging along slower than a 486 with 16 mb of ram running win98. My keystrokes are delayed by a couple seconds as I type this. I check task manager and winlogon.exe is taking 99% CPU. I can't kill it because "This is a critical system process. Task Manager cannot end this process." Stupid Windows.

When will Microsoft make a reliable operating system?
