Written by Chris DeVoney, Contributor on

Microsoft officials have said that Windows 2000 has gotten off to a surprisingly good start.

Windows marketing director, Keith White, during a local media briefing on Thursday, said that the industrial-strength operating system exceeded the company's own expectations by racking up more than 500,000 unit sales to small- and medium-sized businesses and individual users in the US alone.

In disclosing the figure, White noted that it does not take into account worldwide sales or those to large corporate accounts.
