Windows 2000

The next big thing, now that Y2K is over, is the major OS upgrade from Microsoft: Windows 2000 (Win2K).  By all accounts, Windows 2000 is a major leap forward in operating systems as it culls the best features and functions from both Windows NT and Windows 95/98.  The end result is a powerful, flexible, scalable operating system that is perfectly suited for the small to mid-size business.

Beachwood Systems has been using Windows 2000 for several months in beta testing and has highlighted several of Win2Ks best new features and advances:

bullet

Win2K has several new stability features that increase system reliability. 

bullet

Win2K now automatically repairs memory leaks, which other-wise can build up over time and cause system instability and even crashes.

bullet

Win2K has eliminated over 75 scenarios that used to require a system restart, such as adding new components, protocols, and hardware.

bullet

Win2K has improved support for multi-environment net-works.  That means that businesses wont be forced to migrate their entire network to Win2K.

bullet

Win2K has built-in Internet sharing, which is particularly useful if your network has no server.

bullet

Server 2000 has its setup functions, including services and settings, all in one central console and uses wizards, thus putting the everyday user in more control.

bullet

For the road warrior, Win2K has improved power management tools. 

bullet

Win2K has improved security features, including file encryption and e-mail authentication.

bullet

Win2K now tracks software installations for easier, cleaner software maintenance.

bullet

Win2K, unlike Windows NT, is plug-and-play ready.
