Poll: Three-Quarters Have Windows 2000 on Network

Windows 2000: Two Years Later

Results show that three-quarters of respondents have at least one server running Win2K. Of that total, 29 percent said they’ve upgraded at least one server from NT and nearly 46 percent said their company either is in the process of migrating or has completed the migration. Most of the rest (24 percent) said they’re still running NT 4.0 and have no immediate plans to migrate. A tiny percentage of poll-takers (just more than a percent) are still running NT 3.51 with no plans to migrate.
