Windows And this is part two of the story: Microsoft has just confirmed the next version of Windows NT (referring to it as NT for clarity's sake) will be available for ARM - or more specifically, SoCs from NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments. Also announced today at CES is Microsoft Office for ARM. Both Windows NT and Microsoft Office were shown running on ARM during a press conference for the fact at CES in Las Vegas.

There was a Windows 2000 Home version too. Windows 2000 was the first version designed to cater to both business and home users, somehow they just didn't think home users was quite ready, or maybe multiple teams were competing inside Microsoft. It is still a mystery today WTF was up with the ME thing

There certainly was not a Windows 2000 Home version. There was Windows 2000 Server, and Windows 2000 Pro. No other versions.

There was no Home version, as far as I recall. Here's what Wikipedia says:

Four editions of Windows 2000 were released: Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server. Additionally, Microsoft sold Windows 2000 Advanced Server Limited Edition and Windows 2000 Datacenter Server Limited Edition...

But Neptune was never released. Therefore it never happened.
