Microsoft unveils Y2K patch

Microsoft this week issued a year 2000 patch for Windows 95 that will make the operating system year 2000 compliant. In addition, it will maintain the operating system at compliant status if any additional issues arise, according to Don Jones, Microsoft's year 2000 product manager. The patch enables customers to achieve year 2000 compliance without upgrading to Windows 98. Previously, Microsoft offered patches to Windows 95 that made the OS compliant with only minor issues. A patch for foreign language versions of Windows 95 will be issued within 30 days of the April 12 date.
