edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Windows 2000:
  • Service Pack Slipstreaming - nothing on this so far
  • Terminal Services section is very brief
  • Networking support should be covered, at least in part (there's a whole checklist that Microsoft run through - will find this later)
  • Extended support and/or end-of-life status info should be added. Complete.Jdlowery 02:34, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
  • I think it's interesting and relevant to present-day use of this OS to mention that Windows 2000 will "see" a hyper-threading CPU as two CPUs, and will schedule threads exactly as though it were two processors, which supposedly is far from optimal; Windows XP supposedly handles hyper-threading far better, presumably because Windows 2000 was designed before multi-core and hyper-threading CPUs existed.
  • Windows 2000 Powered was a version of Windows 2000 - It would be good to mention it
