Why I had to upgrade from Windows NT to Windows 2000

I was doing fine in Windows NT until a strange malady set in with respect to accessing Web pages. I could reliably access new URLs that I had never visited before, but old ones would tend to hang forever, as if the host is down (when it wasn't).17Upgrading to Windows 2000 fixed the Web access problems in NT.

However, W2K is no bed of roses just yet. Brother didn't get around to porting a printer driver for the MFC-7150C until July 2000, so I could not print under W2K for months. Worse, Microsoft has ``improved'' the NT Backup program so that it now no longer supports my SCSI DAT drive. I therefore cannot do backups under W2K.
