When it comes to Python (and almost everything else), there are no
downsides from moving from Win95/98 to Win2000.  Here at work, I got
rid of the last Win98 machine a few months ago.  Good riddance.

For example, since Win2000 has an Environment Variables tool (Control
Panel | System | Advanced Tab), so PYTHONPATH is a trivial to set and
maintain, even for multiple users.  No more games with BAT files.
