?  !?  I'm confused, and apparently I'm confusing others.
The one message I posted in this thread--largely reinforced
by others--emphasizes only that WinXP is far *better* than
earlier Win* flavors in its thread management.  While I not
only agree that Windows has disadvantages, but have stopped
buying it for our company, my reasons have absolutely nothing
to do with the details of implementation of WinXP.
