It's the future of Windows... Today!
This site is dedicated to providing all of the information you need
to evaluate Microsoft's upcoming Windows operating
systems. These exciting new products will be based on Windows 2000
, the most
important product that Microsoft has ever released. The next version
of Windows 2000, Windows.NET 1.0 (code-named Whistler),
is expected in April 2001, while a future update, Windows.NET 2.0 (code-named Blackcomb),
is due in 2002. Whistler will include both Consumer
and Business editions. Meanwhile, Microsoft recently completed an interim
Consumer Windows product, called Windows Millennium Edition
that will satisfy home users, game players, and other non-business
customers until Whistler Personal Edition becomes available.
This Web site provides continuous updates about Windows 2000, Windows Me,
and the Windows.NET products ("Whistler" and "Blackcomb"), while
offering reviews, and technology showcases, all designed to give you the information you need
to decide which Windows
is for you. And the author of the SuperSite, Paul Thurrott,
is a recognized Windows expert with over 10 years of Windows
experience. Paul is the author of over a dozen books about
Windows, Web and software development, and other computing topics.
Paul is also the publisher of WinInfo, the Windows Informant,
a daily news and information newsletter for Windows users, and the
News Editor for Windows 2000 Magazine, where he also writes a weekly
Windows 2000 newsletter called Windows 2000 Magazine UPDATE. Between his books, newsletters, Web
sites, magazine articles, and occasional guest spots on TV and radio,
Paul reaches millions of users every month.
