I have used both too, rather extensively. And, I do make the arguement that XP is more stable the Win2000. Forget your anecdotal singular user issues, talk to some support professionals that support a reasonably sized installed base of users and you will get a better picture of platform stabilty.
If I have "XP" crash on me, and it does from time to time (well not the OS itself but other apps), it was typically because I was doing something I could not even do on Windows 2000.
And more to the point, it is almost never a OS crash but a flawed program.
This is not a problem with OS but the application.
I have had word crash on me, photoshop, etc.. Those are not OS stabilty issues. In fact XP is better at trapping and isolating application crashes so that the whole system is less likely to go down when a flawed app or driver fails.
