Windows 2000 is an operating system for use on both client and server computers. It was produced by Microsoft and released to manufacturing on December 15, 1999 and launched to retail on February 17, 2000.
It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and was the last version of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation.
Windows 2000 is succeeded by Windows XP (released in October 2001) and Windows Server 2003 (released in April 2003). During the development of this operating system,
Windows 2000 was known as Windows NT 5.0.
Four editions of Windows 2000 were released:
Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server;
the latter was both released to manufacturing and launched months after the other editions.
While each edition of Windows 2000 was targeted at a different market, they shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console and standard system administration applications.
In the next lesson, the prerequisites for this course will be discussed.
