Windows 2000 CPP customers to get new builds

In a nicely timed about-face, Microsoft Corporation has announced that customers of its Corporate Preview Program (CPP) for Windows 2000 will be receiving newer builds than the Beta 3 release they were previously promised. The original plan for CPP was that customers purchasing the $60 CD set would receive only Beta 3, but Microsoft has decided to supply these customers with later "release candidate" (RC) builds as well. The first of these post-Beta 3 builds is expected to become available within the next few days, barely coming in under the "6 to 8 week" timeline for RC1 that Microsoft's Brian Valentine promised in late April.

Microsoft plans to provide updates to this situation via the Windows 2000 Corporate Preview Program Web site
