This is interesting, I've heard similar already. About the graphic
performance, do you have any compareable numbers?

At the moment I have no "Apples with Apples" comparisons, it's just the feel of the thing when
modelling, the graphics just seem so much smoother and Inventor seems so much more responsive (with
Quadro4 cards anyway).
Machines I use with Win2k
Dual AMD 1500+ Quadro4 750
Dual P3 866 with Elsa GLoria 2
Dual AMD 2200+ Quadro4 550
P4 1.6 Laptop ATi Radeon 7500
Most customers we have are migrating to XP from 2000. As John stated,
Windows XP has a faster graphics subsystem than win2k. Performance is in the
neighborhood of 5 to 15% on average, running identical drivers.
