sure you've heard the news about the Microsoft's newest
operating system: Windows* 2000. According to the latest
news, it's set to launch on February 17. But will you be
rushing the store shelves are at the chime of midnight?
The answer, sadly, for most users will probably be
"no". For those that do want to venture into
the new waters, hang on to your hats, the minimum required
computing power is no meager offering. Yes, you must
make a sacrifice to the (hardware) Gods, before you can reap
the rewards of Windows 2000 and all it has to offer. Basic minimum
system requirements for the Windows® 2000 Professional
operating system include:
- 133-MHz or higher Pentium processor or compatible
- 2-Gb hard disk with at least 650 MB free
- 64 MB of RAM recommended (minimum of 32 MB of RAM
Mind you, this is not Windows 95 or 98. This appetite
for computing power comes from the operating system that
Windows 2000 is based on: Windows NT*. Despite these few
shortcomings, this operating system has much to offer in the
way of improved network performance, higher reliability, security
enhancements and internet interactivity. All in all, we foresee
many great things in it's future.
