Microsoft Settles Domain Question Without Dispute

Microsoft had been considering the name “Windows 2000” for its upgrade from Windows NT for some time, but the trademark and domain name Windows2000.com was held by Bob Kerstein, who used the identity in his scripophily business. Windows paid Kerstein an undisclosed amount for the site and trademark, along with the domain name bob.com, which had been registered in 1996 by Bill Gates’ wife.
