Can you believe it?



That I actually threw out several notebooks of technical lessons and materials related to Windows NT 4.0 Server and Workstation?

It’s hard to understand why I kept those huge three ring notebooks with the certification lessons when I was studying to become a MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer) back in 1998. Back then I was taking classroom training, doing self-study and practice tests to pass the MCSE exams to earn my certification. Spent a lot of money and huge amounts of time to earn that certification. A lot has changed in 26 years and that material is seriously outdated. WindowsNT 4.0 been replaced by several new operating systems for Windows based computers the internet has really really changed.

Microsoft released the successor to NT 3.51, Windows NT 4.0, on August 24, 1996, one year after the release of Windows 95. It was Microsoft’s primary business-oriented operating system until the introduction of Windows 2000. Major new features included the new Explorer shell from Windows 95, scalability and feature improvements to the core architecture, kernel, USER32COM and MSRPC.[25]

Windows NT 4.0 came in five versions:

  • Windows NT 4.0 Workstation
  • Windows NT 4.0 Server
  • Windows NT 4.0 Server, Enterprise Edition (includes support for 8-way SMP and clustering)
  • Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server
  • Windows NT 4.0 Embedded

Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows NT 4.0 Workstation on June 30, 2002, and ended extended support on June 30, 2004, while Windows NT 4.0 Server mainstream support ended on December 31, 2002, and extended support ended on December 31, 2004. Both editions were succeeded by Windows 2000 Professional and the Windows 2000 Server Family, respectively.[26][27][28]

Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows NT 4.0 Embedded on June 30, 2003, and ended extended support on July 11, 2006. This edition was succeeded by Windows XP Embedded.
