I ordered the W2K and Office 2000 HOTKITs on Sunday, 4/23/00. The W2K HOTKIT
was delivered Wednesday 4/26/00. The Office 2000 HOTKIT is currently back
ordered with no indication of when it will ship.
The W2K HOTKIT includes W2K Professional and W2K Advanced Server. There is no
"W2K Server" product available from Microsoft. There will be a "W2K Enterprise
Server" product that has not yet been released. It will be shipped to people
who ordered the W2K HOTKIT a while back. Currently, the web site indicates
that Microsoft is no longer including the "W2K Enterprise Server" product in
the HOTKITs that they are now accepting orders for.
The W2K HOTKIT does specify a 10 client limit.

I agree. For somebody who can live with the NFR restrictions and plans to
take advantage of the training. I expect that BOTH HOTKITS are excellent
