Windows 2000

Windows 2000 was released as an update to Windows NT 4.0. It is not an upgrade to Windows 98 or 98SE.

Windows 2000 builds on Windows NT and offers the following improvements:


  • Full 32-bit operating system

  • Support for NTFS or FAT32, with support for hard disk drives as big as 32GB when running FAT32

  • Windows File Protection, which prevents installed applications from deleting necessary system files

  • Elimination of many reboot scenarios, including program installations that require a reboot to function correctly

  • Support for up to 4GB of Random Access Memory (RAM)

  • Microsoft Management Console (MMC)

  • Stronger Internet integration with Internet Explorer 5.0.1

There are three different versions of Windows 2000: Professional, Server, and Advanced Server. Professional was designed for desktop and laptop systems, both stand-alone and networked, for individual use. Server was designed to run file and printer servers. Advanced Server was designed to run more powerful servers; it has support for an additional 4GB of RAM (for a total of 8GB).


Windows XP

Released in late 2001, Windows XP was the replacement for both the 95/98 and NT families of Windows. Based on the same code used to create Windows 2000, XP came in two workstation versions at launch: Home and Professional. Both versions incorporate the features of Windows 2000. Since its original release, three new editions of Windows XP have been released. These include Media Center Edition, Tablet PC Edition, and XP Professional x64 (64-bit) Edition.



Note: If you want to upgrade an older version of Windows to XP, UITS recommends a clean install rather than a traditional upgrade, due to the strong underlying differences between the older family of operating systems and Windows XP.
