The company sees it as a part of its overall Enterprise Computing plan.It scales up from basic 486 systems to high-end RISC sys tems from companies like Digital, NEC,and PCvendors offering PowerPC systems for NT. The basic operating system consists of a user interface shell (similar in appearance to Windows 3.1 for NT 3.1 to 3.5, and changing to look and feel more like Windows 95 for NT 4.0) de signed to run 32-bit programs. This makes it ideal for the multi media nature of Web browsers, and for the heavy-duty require ments of a Web server. There are a number of elements in the as that are special to NT.
