Microsoft's product roadmap
At the beginning of the Comdex in Las Vegas, Bill Gates disclosed Microsoft's product roadmap for the consumer sector. Accordingly, the Office 2000 successor, Office 10, will appear in the first half of 2001.
The name will probably be Office 2001 accordingly. In the second half of 2001, the joint successor to Windows 2000 and Windows Me with the current code name Whistler will appear. Windows Whistler's Beta 1, which was recently sent to the beta testers, already makes a very stable impression and can come up with numerous innovations. Finally, Bill Gates has confirmed that the Xbox, Microsoft's gaming console, will be available shortly before Christmas 2001.
