Windows 2000 details announced

Microsoft has outlined final packaging for the Windows 2000 operating system product line, most of which is due out by the end of this year.

Microsoft has said that the line will include four products:

-- Windows 2000 Server, a network operating system for department file and print functions, Internet use and entry-level application servers. The software will support systems including up to four processors.

-- Windows 2000 Advanced Server will support up to eight processors, and is aimed at critical Web and business-application servers. It will offer integrated clustering and load balancing.

-- Windows 2000 DataCenter Server, aimed at companies with high-end server needs. The software will support additional clustering functions and up to 32 processors.

-- Windows 2000 Professional for mainstream desktop and laptop use will support up to two processors.

The professional, server and advanced products are expected to be out by the end of the year, with the DataCenter server software out 90 to 120 days later, Microsoft said in a statement outlining the packaging options. Pricing will be announced later.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
