Whistler Preview distributed to testers

As Paul Thurrott reports, Microsoft has made beta 1 of Windows 2001, which was presented to 6000 programmers yesterday, available to some handpicked ones via FTP today. This version is build 2250. Windows 2000 RTM was 2195

This means that the complete Windows code was only compiled in 55 since the Windows 2000 release. Whistler is the successor to Windows 2000 and Windows Me. It won't be a big update like Windows 2000, which was 3 years in development. It will have the version number 5.1 (Windows 2000 was 5.0)
