A Microsoft research project that seeks to build distributed computing — networks that share resources. While Millennium includes many of the same goals as Sun Microsystems’ Jini, which seeks to completely separate the operating system from applications, Millenium plans to remove only some applications from the desktop operating system. Microsoft promotes Millennium as a technology capable of immediately assimilating new machines, links, and resources added to a network, and capable of adjusting behavior to improve performance.
