ComputerWorld: Microsoft acknowledges delay of Windows 2000 release candidate

(Other stories by Bob Trott)

"Microsoft put a happy face Thursday on its decision to delay the release of Release Candidate 2 (RC2) of Windows 2000, insisting the move would not hinder the company's efforts to ship final code by the end of 1999.

While Microsoft continues to leave the door open for an early 2000 release for the upgrade to Windows NT 4.0, and sources say a January RTM is a serious possibility, the issue of when it ships is little more than a matter of pride for the software giant.

Other than some participants in Microsoft's early deployment program, most IT shops have no plans to adopt Windows 2000 right off the bat anyway."

"RC2 was due out this week, but now the release will not surface until Sept. 15, at the earliest, sources said. Microsoft has scheduled a 'Developer Day' event, which will center on Windows 2000, for that day."
