Microsoft Releases what they have called “The Most Powerful Operating System Ever”

   It will officially be out
next month, but it has been moved into manufacturing, so, as far as I can tell,
Datacenter Server is done (at least until the Service Packs).  I got a
headline type e-mail about this on Friday, but then saw a Reuters article while
surfing through the stocks and options world on Sunday that really caught my
eye. 

It will officially be out next month, but it has been moved into manufacturing, so, as far as I can tell, Datacenter Server is done (at least until the Service Packs). I got a headline type e-mail about this on Friday, but then saw a Reuters article while surfing through the stocks and options world on Sunday that really caught my eye.

   The reason was the statement
about the most powerful operating system ever.  I would imagine that a
better approach might be to wait until the product has hit the streets and
gotten a little feedback before making such a bold proclamation (I guess they
have to keep up the marketing).

   Here is a clip from that
Reuters article:

  

SEATTLE (Reuters) – Microsoft Corp. (NasdaqNM:MSFT
news) said it will release
its most powerful operating system ever late next month, hailing the product as
an important piece in its new “.NET” strategy to shift the software giant’s
focus to the Internet.

Windows 2000 Datacenter Server, the top-of-the-line version of Microsoft’s
family of operating systems for corporate computer networks, was sent to
manufacturers on Friday and will go on sale September 26, the company said
Friday.

Datacenter is capable of powering computers with up to 32 processors and
targets the biggest and most demanding networks, such as those found in
financial establishments or scientific research institutions that need to crunch
huge amounts of information.

   

    If anybody has access to this OS and has been
able to use it, please e-mail me a little feedback as I am eager to see if the
folks at Microsoft live up to their word.
