As tstaber says 'New Technology', however it used to be called 'Northern Telecom' until microsoft took it over (Northern telecom being the company who origianlly 'created' Windows NT).
Microsoft renamed it to New Technology
(because it had a lot of new stuff in I guess and to keep the NT tag)

Network Technology was what I origianlly thought it stood for (makes sense because it is very good with networks unlike 9X) until I read a couple of web sites saying basically what I said above.

If "NT" stands for "New Technology" why then is Windows 2000 based on "Windows NT Technology"???? Microsoft wouldn't be that redundant would they?

mmanning98,

Good point, because they are infact saying

"Windows 2000 - Based on Windows New Technology Technology"

Hehe :)
