"First and foremost let us consider the comparison. With four
versions of Windows 2000 now available, each aimed at a different
portion of the marketplace, it is necessary to be aware of the
product differences in the area in which comparisons are being
"In the workstation marketplace, for example, one must compare
Windows 2000 Professional; in the server market, Windows 2000
Server or Win2k Advanced Server for multi-processor systems (up to
4- or 8-way processing, appropriately); and in the enterprise
marketplace, the product to study in detail is Windows 2000
Datacentre Server with support for up to 32 processors and 64Gb of
RAM. It is only fair to compare like with like, after all."
"The enterprise-level platform - Datacentre Server - has yet to
make any impact. Indeed, the very definition of 'enterprise' can be
argued, so for the purposes of this article the workstation and
server markets are discussed."
