Windows 2000 -v- Windows XP !

Posing this question on behalf of a friend. I realise each OS will have its champions but leaving sentiment aside; which would be regarded as the better? I went from Me to XP so I am unable to advise. I imagine XP followed on from 2000 so assume it to be better by definition but does there exist any real pro's and con's. The reason for the question is my friend is the market for a 2nd hand PC wants to know if the OS would have a bearing on price/operation. Cheers.

If he wants a used PC, it's most likely to have XP (and the Home flavour, which is slightly different underneath to the Pro version). I can't see much advantage in 2000 for home user, who will find XP more user-friendly and nicer to look at.

Cheers ade.h, I was thinking along those lines too.
