Windows NT is the industrial-strength variant of MS-Windows. Current revisions offer the look and feel of Windows '95 and older revisions offer the look and feel of Windows 3.1. It is the most robust flavor of MS-Windows and is fully multitasking. It is also by far the most expensive flavor of MS-Windows and has far less software available for it than Windows '95 or '98. In particular, do not expect to play many games on a Windows NT machine, and expect some difficulty in obtaining good drivers. Windows NT will run on a few different processor types, including the x86, the Alpha, and the PowerPC. Plans are in place to port Windows NT to the Merced when it becomes available.

Windows NT is an operating system created and marketed by Microsoft Corporation. It was designed for use both as a server platform and an application environment. NT is available in two favours: Windows NT Server and Windows NT Workstation. As the names indicate, NT Server is oriented toward acting as a file server, print server, or database server; NT Workstation is dedicated to running applications in a stable 32-bit environment and could be viewed as a step up from the Windows 95 operating system. Incidentally, NT is an acronym for 'new technology'.

Windows NT is a high-level operating system suitable for regular client/server networks. Windows NT is a popular office operating system due to its familiar Windows interface and its increased security and stability. NT Server is the version of NT that should be installed on the server, and NT Workstation is the version that should be installed on the client computers. There are various service packs available free from Microsoft that are highly recommended to update NTâ€(tm)s functioning. Source: TechSoup.org
An operating system introduced in 1993, designed with a focus on networking and business users as opposed to home users. Features include 32-bit multitasking and the ability to run high performance programs simultaneously. A main difference between NT and 95/98 is the enhanced security capabilities of Windows NT which have made NT a preferred operating system for businesses with security requirements.
An operating system released by Microsoft Corporation in 1993. The Windows NT operating system, sometimes referred to as simply NT, is the high-end member of a family of operating systems from Microsoft. It is a completely self-contained operating system with a built-in graphical user interface. Windows NT is a 32-bit, preemptive multitasking operating system that features networking, symmetric multiprocessing, multithreading, and security.

New Technology. Microsoft’s operating system – essentially a derivative of PC-DOS and Windows – offering pre-emptive multi-tasking and multithreading, OLE, DDE, etc, in a portable 32-bit environment. After years of pre-announcement, NT finally appeared in May 1993 in server and client versions, and was vigorously promoted by Microsoft as a server – rather than a desktop – environment. By early 1995, Microsoft claimed to have 25% of the server market, and by early 1996 it was giving Unix a run for its money. May 1996, IBM announced software which would allow NT applications to run on an z/OS mainframe. Version 5.0 was renamed Windows 2000 prior to release in February 2000. See also Cairo.
Abbreviation of Windows New Technology, a 32-bit multitasking operating system developed by Microsoft Corporation and released at the end of 1992. Windows NT is scalable and designed for use on a broad range of platforms, including high-end workstations. Windows NT consists of two versions - the basic product and the Windows NT Advanced Server. As such, the operating system has been positioned by Microsoft for client-server computing over networked systems.
Windows NT is a family of operating systems produced by Microsoft, the first version of which was released in July 1993. It was originally designed to be a powerful high-level language-based processor-independent multiprocessing multiuser operating system with features comparable to Unix to complement workstation versions of Windows that were based on MS-DOS until 2001. It was the first fully 32-bit version of Windows, whereas its consumer-oriented counterparts, Windows 3.x and Windows 9x, are 16-bit/32-bit hybrids.
