    Well I've been reading about the CL14 update for the last week, trying to decide whether I wanted my wife to get it on her Moment. Her phone had none of the bugs other Moments had other than horrible battery life so I haven't pushed her to get it (she did't want to deal with setting it up again after a wipe). Today she got the text from Sprint about the update and I finally convinced her we should go have it done. So we went in to have it done and while they were doing it they said it wouldn't take the ROM and the screen froze. Good news is, we got a brand new one no charge, and it was already updated. Now I'm glad my computer is too old for me to have tried the update myself!!! Also, this has decided for me to NEVER root my Hero, which I've been contemplating but been too scared.

    My computer is an antique running Windows 2000, so I can't. And after this I'm glad, they may not have given me a new phone if I brought it in bricked, especially since we don't have insurance on it.

    LOL, it sucks. I find myself surfing the web on my phone more than the computer, even if I'm in the same room with it. There's a few things it can do that the phones can't, but it ain't much.

    That sucks, but don't surprise me. Most of the people that work at the Sprint stores around here are idiots and lazy. When I got my Moment the fat bastard didn't even try to transfer my contacts from my BlackBerry and I was paying the full price for the Moment.

    ME and 2K are two completely different versions. 2K is the updated NT and designed to be a network client. One of my computers at work is 2K and with a gig of ram and a decent graphics card it runs circles around newer versions with the same hardware. ME on the other hand is complete crap.

    X2, 2000 is great. Most of the Windows 5.1(XP) compatibility and drivers in a small install without having to deal with the abysmal performance and lack of NTFS support from Windows 4.X.

    I had a P2-366 Sony laptop and it ran like a top with W2K on a 4GB compact flash hard drive conversion. Loved it!

    Windows 2000 and Windows ME are two different OS's

    EDIT: Crap, someone pointed that out already.
