It is a Windows NT based OS - no DOS support, many pre-2000 games don't work, or work badly, many later games have problems too. It is also the most unstable Windows NT based OS, at least in my opinion.
No DOS support... well duh! We have DOS for that. As if the "reboot to DOS" option in Win9x was that great.
There are indeed a few games that won't work on 2k, just because they check if you have 9x or NT and just refuse to run on NT for no reason. But these are exceptions and most work just fine.
Of the NT line, 2K might have been the most unstable.. Compared to a clean XP install with the latest upgrades and no third party drivers, maybe. My experience still says otherwise, but whatever. Compared to 9x is a no-brainer, 2K beats that any day. And in performance as well. Try comparing framerates in 9x vs 2K and you'll see.
