Serious software compatibility problems have been found running Windows NT 4.0 software on Windows 2000. This is certainly not unexpected considering W2K is 85% new code. Microsoft is concerned that buyers will delay "upgrading" to Windows 2000 until Windows 2000 tested titles are released, so it has launched a Windows 2000 Ready software program. Software vendors are urged to modify their products to assure they will run on W2K when it is released. This is a little hard since major features like Active Directory aren't done yet.

Months ago Microsoft launched the Windows 2000 Ready hardware program to mollify computer manufacturers who's profits have been hurt by endless delays in W2K's release date. Buyers have been holding off for the release of W2K to be sure they don't buy something inadequate.
