NetworkWorld: High-end version of Win 2000 reaches development milestoneMay 23, 2000, 22:17 (6 Talkback[s])
"Microsoft today released the second beta of Windows 2000 DataCenter, the high-end version of the company's new operating system."
"The DataCenter version of Win 2000 has been touted as a Unix-killer and is designed to push Microsoft into the high-end server market."
"Beta 2 will be the last beta before Microsoft develops a release candidate for final testing, in preparation for shipping the server later this summer, according to Michel Gambier, group product manager for DataCenter. The software was originally expected to ship 90 to 120 days after the Feb. 17 launch of the other three Win 2000 products, Professional desktop, Server and Advanced Server. DataCenter will likely ship in July or early August."
