WINDOWS 2000 & GAMES

Windows 2000 is so stable that it’s easy to forget to keep it up to date. If you’re running Windows 2000, visit Microsoft Windows Update and check for critical updates. (If you haven’t installed Service Pack 1, it’s a good idea, but not if you’re on a dialup connection – it’s a big download.) And if you’re a gamer, look for “Application Compatibility Updates.” They allow more than 180 programs to run that initially weren’t compatible with Win2K – especially games. Yesterday it became possible for the first time to play Grim Fandango on Windows 2000. Life is good!
