RE: XP and PS Driver


Avoiding the question of WHY you would want to upgrade to Windows XP
from Windows 2000 (in some ways, it can be a downgrade -- Windows XP
Pro is essentially Windows 2000 with an attitude and tollbooth), the
Adobe applications, printer drivers, and the font rendering subsystem
SHOULD come through such an upgrade OK. We have not heard of problems
with such "upgrades" but we know of very, very few in reality!
