Windows 2000 is a line of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, business desktops, laptops, and servers. Released on 17 February 2000, it was the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the final release of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation. It was succeeded by Windows XP for desktop systems in October 2001 and Windows Server 2003 for servers in April 2003. Windows Me was released seven months after Windows 2000 and one year before Windows XP, but Windows Me was not intended to be, nor did it serve as the successor to Windows 2000. Windows Me was designed for home use, while Windows 2000 was designed for business.
Windows 2000 established a base with high safety performance controlling access to enterprise information. It also supports SmartCard certification, Kerberos, PKI, encrypted file storage and network communication. All those powerful management functions ensure that all guest machines based on Windows could thoroughly implement user's security policy.
However, currently mainstream software doesn't support Windows very well. Moreover, Windows 2000 fails to support ADSL dial-up while most domestic personal computers employ ADSL dial-up which consequently results in the poor popularity of Windows 2000.
