    Homemade desktop - XP Home
    Dell Dimension from 2001 - XP Home
    Dell Latitude Laptop - 2000 Pro

    The Dell Dimension used to have Windows Millennium (aka WinME, PCWorld's number 4 in the Top 25 Worst Tech products of all time) and had a slew of problems... my god the problems. But none of the others have had any OS problems.

    I remember upgrading the Dell Dimension to XP so I could run Illustrator CS2 on it, and being kinda annoyed, but I'm so glad I was forced to because its been nothing but smooth sailing ever since.
