RE: Planning: Minimum System Requirements

Or more precisely:

Windows Millennium Edition = end of the line for the venerable Windows 9x
Windows 2000 Professional = Windows NT 5.0 Workstation
Windows 2000 Server = Windows NT 5.0 Server
Windows 2000 Enterprise Edition = Windows NT 5.0 Server with Clustering

Perhaps the confusion came from Windows XP (loosely NT 6.0 workstation) with
its Home Edition (sans remote desktop, EFS, among others a la Pro) vs.
Professional nomenclature.

My two cents,

Umm, sorry.  That's just totally wrong.  ME is the culmination of the win9x
line, and 2k is of the NT line.  The differences are vast (not least being
that ME is a pimple upon the arse of MS Windows and 2k is pretty good for
what it is).
