Windows 2000 OEM prices leaked

Jan 24 trade launch revealed in CRN scoop

Microsoft sources today confirmed OEM versions Windows 2000 will ship from distie warehouses on Monday 24 January. They also confirmed that yesterday’s CRN.com’s scoop on OEM prices was accurate to "within a couple of dollars". So here are the prices, as posted by CRN: *Windows 2000 3-pack $386 *Windows 2000 Server $725 The Windows 2000 3-pack is around $100 cheaper than its Windows NT 4.0 equivalent -- a useful price break for hard-pressed system builders; however Windows 2000 Server is $66 more expensive than NT 4.0 Server. Microsoft system builders will welcome the early availability of code which will enable them to ramp up marketing and production plans well in advance of the Feb 17 retail launch of Windows 2000. ® CRN article in full
