Windows 2000--What's in it for CPAs?

Thursday marked the debut for the new Windows 2000 operating system, and according to a report, Bill Gates himself said the new OS is much more "reliable" than previous Windows releases.

Windows 2000 is complex, with more than 35 million lines of code, and ran one year later in its release than expected ... but what does the release mean for CPA firms and businesses running the software?

Actually, firms and companies in the NT environment will benefit the most from Windows 2000. Microsoft is touting Windows 2000 differently than expected--not as an upgrade to Windows 98, but a boon to the networked business. Different versions are available for various size companies.

Microsoft is betting big that Windows 2000 will be the panacea to its anti-trust woes over the past year. The software cost the compnay more than $1 billion to develop.
