Report: Windows 2000 to launch in February

At its Partner Marketing Day in Las Vegas Tuesday, Microsoft announced that it is aiming for February 17 as the retail release date for its Windows 2000 operating system.

The company is still aiming to have Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Advanced Server released to manufacturing during calendar year 1999, and says that February 17, 2000 will be the launch date, provided that feedback from early-adopter customers is positive.

With no apparent sense of irony - considering the uncertainty that has for years surrounded the final launch date of the operating system -- Deborah Willingham, vice president of Microsoft's Business Enterprise Division at Microsoft was quoted in a press release as saying:

"We are thrilled that customers and partners can build their plans around the general availability of Windows 2000."
