Python works fine on Win2k - however, sometimes Windows doesn't <wink>. 
  There are subtle differences between the platform, and in general, 
Python does nothing to hide that.  However, in general, stuff will work 
fine on both platforms - particularly, moving from 9x->NT will cause 
less surprises than moving from NT->9x.

I'm very happy XP is now the consumer OS - getting 9x off the planet is 
a good thing.
