Windows 2000 like Windows 98 comes with the Windows Update technology that takes place in the start menu. So if you want to check any available updates and install it it’ll be easy for you if you’ve got an Internet connection. A new Hardware update website will also help you to update your hardware. Microsoft has told our Ziff Davis colleagues that it’ll propose soon a new Internet support service, where users will be able to consult the online knowledge base to answer a specific problem.

 MuiltiLanguage Version

Microsoft is releasing a MultiLanguage Version of Windows 2000. The operating system allows users to change the language of the user interface, choosing from any one of 24 languages. Menus, help files and dialog boxes can be switched to for example: Japanese, Italian, or Swedish. Plus, users can create, edit, and print documents in hundreds of different languages. Users can change the interface language by simply selecting Control Panel and then Regional Options. A drop-down box lists the languages available.
