New Windows 2000 Update Released

 

Microsoft has quietly posted a collection of updates and bug fixes for its Windows 2000 operating system on its website. The official release of the update will probably not come until next week, and will be called Windows 2000 Service Pack 2.

The update comes with new features, including better standard security (128-bit encryption as opposed to 56-bit) and a "series of tweaks and tricks" that make the operating system work better with older software programs.

The download is a 10MB file, which can be obtained free of charge from Microsoft's download pages.

  call it "Service Pack"  
 
For "Updates", Microsoft does charge money. For their collection of fixes
and minor improvements of the system
they use the term "Service Pack".

  Wrong Size  
 
It's actually 101Mb and seems to have been leaked by someone in MS. However it is available to download from MS's hosting partner.

  huh so big? My Linux fits on an 1,44 floppy.  
 
do they have bundled some software
like MS-IE, Media Player and alikes...
I think that would be impossible for
any modem user to download. And as
everytime the nice whish "i only want
the fixes, nothing more" doesnt work.
