WIN2000: Later '99

Can Microsoft beat the Year 2000 budget blues? Time's running out.

If you were among those expecting Microsoft Corp. to ship Windows 2000 by mid-1999, don't hold your breath.

Beta 3 of the long-awaited operating system is now not expected to reach testers until April, Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) officials confirm. And Microsoft itself, in a tacit acknowledgment that Windows 2000 won't be a first-half product, told resellers this week that it is extending its Windows NT Server 4.0 upgrade promotion through June 30.

If Windows 2000 slips much beyond a mid-year ship date, Microsoft could find itself facing head-on problems that the company has claimed are figments of analysts' imaginations: Namely, that IS departments, faced with Year 2000 budget concerns, may hold off for a year or more from deploying Windows 2000 en masse.

Microsoft officials this week acknowledged that April is now the Beta 3 target, and claim any date slippage in the beta won't negatively impact the final ship date.

"We're still shooting, hopefully, for an end of year ship date," says a corporate spokeswoman. "We are still expecting we can get it out before year-end."
