Navy carrier to run Win 2000

God help us all! j/k :O Thanks Charles for this news byte. The Navy goes Win2k!

The Navy's next-generation aircraft carrier will use Microsoft Windows 2000 to run its communications systems, aircraft and weapons launchers, and other ship electronics.

The CVN 77, one of the Navy's nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, will run Microsoft Windows 2000 for a variety of communications and weapons systems.

Newport News Shipbuilding is constructing CVN 77, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, for the Navy in Newport News, Va. In January, the shipbuilder chose Lockheed Martin Corp. to develop the carrier's integrated warfare systems, said Jerri Fuller Dickseski, a company spokeswoman. Lockheed Martin officials chose Microsoft for the project.

Following a seven-year shipbuilding project to begin in February, CVN 77 is expected to enter the fleet in 2008, she said.
