Windows 2000 is the successor to Microsoft's popular Windows NT 4.0 Operating System. (Technically, it's NT 5.0. The name was changed for marketing reasons.)  Windows 2000 builds on NT's strengths and offers significant improvements in reliability, security, manageability, scalability, and hardware support. Both Windows NT and Windows 2000 are extremely well built, robust, secure, and popular Operating Systems that are designed specifically for businesses and high end environments. But Windows 2000 is a lot more than just a simple upgrade. It's almost a total rewrite of the Windows NT Operating System, with hundreds of new features and fixes.
