Highly reliable sources said today that Microsoft will ship Beta 3 of Windows 2000 to 100,000 end users on April 21st. And the beta will come with support for four way clustering, we are given to understand. A Microsoft executive said at the Intel Developer Forum last week that Win2000 will be ported to the Alpha platform. We understand that NT ProLiant servers in two way and four way Alpha configurations are on track. The same highly reliable sources say that an 800MHz EV67 will arrive sometime this month or early next, while EV68 is to clock at 1000MHz by the end of the year, in real systems. Liquid nitrogen, in the shape of Kryotech support, will not be required. But can Microsoft ship Win2000 on time? This is the conundrum currently plaguing both Compaq and bitter rival Hewlett Packard. The old guard, at both companies, have their own Unix interests, with high margins and high prices. As previously revealed here, there will only be two more revs of PA-RISC, while old timers at Compaq say that the Alpha running Tru64 is yesterday's box. However, Compaq and Microsoft are betting on NT, with the former giving the latter support, as also revealed here earlier. ® Related Stories Compaq promotes Alpha as high end server Intel anxious about Compaq Alpha threat
