Windows 2000 and Windows XP are based upon the newer "Windows NT" architecture, which replaces the DOS base with the NT kernel, providing a far more stable and secure environment. The down side is that the support for Windows NT is not nearly as strong as it is for Windows 9x/Me, especially with regards to specialty hardware (such as video capture devices, game controllers, etc.) and games.
Windows XP, released at the end of 2001, is intended to be a single, unifying product, replacing all Windows lines. XP is based on the Windows NT kernel (it's actually only a slight revision of Windows 2000, and is known internally as Windows NT 5.1) and should eliminate the problems of all its predecessors, including the scant industry support of the NT line and the poor performance and reliability of the 9x/Me line.
Hope this answers your question
