Editorial Review

Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional is the most reliable desktop operating system for business. Building on the power of Windows NT and the ease of using Windows 98, Windows 2000 is the best choice for work environments--big and small. Windows 2000 Professional offers the launching pad businesses need to benefit from the productivity and Internet applications that they use most. When combined with Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2000 Professional is the foundation for the distributed platform that will optimize your business for today's dynamic work environment. The built-in Windows 98 business features include a simplified user interface, improved Plug and Play, Power Management, and support for a broad range of hardware devices. It's more reliable, secure, and manageable than Windows NT Workstation because of its new file encryption system and application management tools. Windows 2000 Professional was designed for business solutions and is not intended to replace Windows 95 or 98 for entertainment, gaming, or typical home use.
