> Windows XP and 2k are NT.

I know. But games that don’t run on NT (like GK3) *can* be played on XP by using compatibility mode.

There are a lot of games (not just Sierra games) that won’t even let you install without compatibility mode, because whatever checks they do at the onset determine that the OS is incompatible. In my experience, these cases are where compatibility mode has been most useful.
