Win2k vs. WinNT on PXI-8156B

Has anybody noticed any kind of preformance increase on the 8156B controller when using Win2K over WinNT?

Just trying to determine if it's worth the upgrade.

Using the Abort button to stop your VI is like using a tree to stop your car. It works, but there may be consequences.

Yes, I've found that Win 2K seems to run more efficiently on these controllers as well as others. It seems it is not the memory hog that NT is. You also get the nice added benefit of Plug n Play and your partitions are not restricted to 2 GB which be todays standards are pretty small. Hope this helps.
