The standard Windows applets have been enhanced like the notepad that now supports the font of your choice. For your Internet convenience, Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 5.01 and Net meeting 3.1 are obviously included in Microsoft Windows 2000. Other new applets are included:

Microsoft CD deluxe (a beautiful & useful CD Player that retrieves CD track titles on the internet and which was first included in Microsoft Plus 98!).

New telephony software allows you to define call groups, to phone to your preferred contacts and much more directly from Windows and your favorite modem if it supports TAPI 32!

The server release of Microsoft Windows 2000 includes useful tools that allow you to create, convert and send over the net your audio files…

The old good Pinball game of Plus 95 is also included in Windows 2000 Professional! So when you’re boss is not here you’ll be able to play to this fun game!

Spider? If you hate spiders and web, don’t be afraid by the name of this card game. Microsoft Windows 2000 Pro includes the ‘Spider Solitaire’ game that was originally first released in Microsoft Plus! 98.
