Does a switch ditribute the bandwith accordingly or does
it split it 50/50 ?

Hope it helps.
I went to the HP forums at HP.com to see when the W2K drivers would be
released for my 2 month old HP 4200C USB scanner. I am truly shocked in what
I have read thus far in regards to no W2K support for the 4200C.
I understand the reasoning that the forum moderators have given for not
supporting the 4200C scanner and the other HP scanners under W2K, but I do
not agree with it (their reasoning is because of USB not being in NT and the
scanner was not designed for NT and thus W2000 and that the 4200C is for
home use and W2K is for businesses). I tried to make that point that W2K is
the first step in the convergence of NT and 98 with it's core being that of
NT. For a home user that is a "serious" PC user, this is a great (and
logical) step in OS's. We now have the benefits of the pure 32 bit OS, the
increased stability and functionality of NT, improved multi-tasking, much
better multi-user control (which I use in our home), and now it will run the
entertainment side of our requirements as well with supporting Direct X 7,
USB, PnP, DVD, etc...
My opinion/feeling is that HP made the call strictly on $'s. That being for
the number of home users that will upgrade to W2K, only a handful of them
will own a HP 4200C. And for that small number that own the HP 4200C we can
handle the disappointments/complaints that will follow because it is not
cost-effective to bring the peripheral forward to the new OS for this small
group of customers. I don't agree with HP's reasoning that home users will
not go W2K (or should not) on the basis that it is for businesses to upgrade
to from NT4.
Because I am so 'put off' by this decision and HP's logic behind who W2K is
"only" for, I will be boycotting all HP products in the future. Is this
extreme? Some will say 'yes' but I feel very sour from what I have just
learned and disagree with it especially since HP is a highly reputable
multi-billion dollar company.
