to replace Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT Workstation 4.0 on all
business desktops and laptops.
As a version of Windows both for PCs and servers, Windows 2000 has four different versions :
Professional: the client version, meant for desktop workstations
Server: "entry-level" server, designed for small deployments, and departmental file, print, or intranet servers.
Advanced Server: high throughput, larger scale servers and applications, and small to medium scale web sites.
Data Center Server: software for large-scale server clustersThe
interface of Windows 2000 almost remained the same compared to Windows 98
and Windows NT 4.0 with Internet Explorer 4. It integrated Microsoft Internet
Explorer 5 instead of version 4.
For IT professionals, the Windows 2000 Server family offers advanced
features such as centralized, policy-based management with new technologies
such as Microsoft IntelliMirror management and the Microsoft Active Directory
service. Faster deployment meant many organizations liked the look of Windows
2000. Many companies continue to migrate to Windows 2000.
