"Availability of the service pack, which corrects bugs in
Windows 2000 and enhances existing features, is expected to be an
important event for Microsoft. Many industry analysts, among them
Gartner and International Data Corp., had recommended that the bulk
of businesses wait until the release of the first service pack
before moving to Windows 2000."
"Release of the service pack could help Microsoft pick up
more Windows 2000 Server installations at a time when Linux is
rapidly grabbing market share. In 1999, Linux scooted past
Novell's Netware to become the No. 2 server operating system behind
Microsoft's Windows NT, according to IDC."
"...Microsoft yesterday quietly posted the 83MB file, called
Windows 2000 SP 1, on three Web sites... These files are
administrative versions used by network managers, and Microsoft is
expected to offer at least one smaller service pack for people
looking to update individual PCs."
