Opperhoofd Bill heeft ons verzekerd dat Windows 2000 nog voor het eind van dit jaar gereleased wordt:
Microsoft Chairman and CEO Bill Gates said today he was "pretty sure" Windows 2000 would be out the door by the end of the year.
"We are very close to the final shipment," Gates told some 1200 managers here at Dell Computer's DirectConnect conference. "We're pretty sure the builds will go final by the end of the year." Gates, who spent much of his keynote reiterating plans for the future, did offer some new tidbits, such as that Microsoft will spend $3.8bn this year on research and development.
Twenty-five years ago, he said, his vision was to put a computer on every desk and in every house. Now, with 50 percent of all American homes owning a PC, Microsoft's next move is to help revolutionise the workplace by creating software that works anyplace and on any device. "We still have a lot of work to do," Gates said. "The end is not in sight."
