In Brief: Millenium in second beta

• Beta 2 of the Millennium operating system has shipped to selected manufacturers and developers. Millennium is an upgrade to Windows 98 that Microsoft plans to deliver in the year 2000. It will attempt to improve ease-of-use and support new multimedia and home networking technologies. Most of its features are targeted at consumers, but some features (such as System File Protection, Microsoft's new mechanism for preventing "DLL Hell") will appeal to corporate users as well. TechNet Plus participants will receive Beta 2 of Millennium in a future shipment.
