They say you can tell the pioneers by the arrows in their backs. Whether you intend to be a Windows 2000 pioneer or not, you need to know where Microsoft's huge, controversial new OS is headed. NT 5: The Next Revolution — published just before Microsoft changed the product's name — is your soup-to-nuts briefing.

How scalable is Windows 2000 Server likely to be? How does Microsoft's new Active Directory change NT's traditional domain structure, which is showing its age (to put it mildly)? How is Microsoft deepening Windows 2000's support for distributed objects and applications? Will Microsoft Management Console truly simplify Windows 2000 system and network administration, and how does the W2K management toolset compare to what's available with NT4? Will Microsoft's revamped security architecture — with Kerberos-based authentication — be adequate for companies who want to deploy business-critical applications?

The answers are here — along with a fair degree of skepticism wherever it's warranted. This isn't just the "company line": the authors don't hesitate to point out Microsoft's failures and limitations in enterprise computing. On balance, however, NT 5: The Next Revolution finds substantial value in those 40,000,000 lines of code. Whether you're a power user or an IT executive, it'll whet your appetite for the finished product.
