Most applications that worked on 2000 should run under XP. At work, we only had a few programs that didn't work and most of these were legacy apps. Even then, you can usually get them to work by running them in compatibility mode.

If you're computer can handle it, you might just want to hold off and upgrade to Vista.

I don't think Nero 7 is Vista compatible yet either.

I'm not sure how much the Vista upgrade is going to be. Most likely it will be comparable to XP.

If you have an older computer, I'd stick with XP as Vista has some hefty hardware requirements.

You didn't mention why you're thinking about the upgrade. What's the advantage for you to go from 2000 to XP?
