    I'm pretty sure anyone computer-savvy knows that Windows XP was built off of 2000, and that every mention of 2000 was removed. Well, as it turns out, there is one mention of 2000. While deleting system files (in a VM of course), a restore critical Windows files screen appeared, and said to insert an XP SP2 Disk. When I clicked on more information, however, this appeared:

    First time i've seen that before. Could just be that XP is Win2000 based. I guess that would make sense.

    Well. from the many WinXP betas we can see it looked very similar to 2000 early on.
