Microsoft Corporation and Windows NT Magazine on Monday launched a 40-city tour to promote Windows 2000 at computer user groups around the United States. Dubbed the Windows 2000 Customer Preview Tour, the goal is to let people get hands on experience with Windows 2000 while meeting with members of the Windows 2000 engineering team.
"We have learned that the best way for people to understand the benefits of a product like Windows 2000 is to see it and use it," said Jim Allchin, senior vice president of the Platforms Division at Microsoft. "The Windows 2000 Customer Preview Tour is a great opportunity for us to solicit feedback on our product and give customers the tips, tricks and tools they need to be successful with Windows 2000."
At each stop on the tour, a 90-minute presentation will be used to demonstrate Windows 2000. Members of the engineering team, such as product managers, program managers, and technology specialists will be on hand to answer questions.
